Community Safety Knowledge Alliance

Research to Practice to Alignment

“It is not enough to conduct the best research studies, produce the best reports, and document the best practices in any field – knowledge must influence social policy, make it to front lines of practice, and ultimately, guide us towards a better alignment of our collective investments in community safety and well-being.”
