On April 6, 2010, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors instructed the Chief Executive Office (CEO) to implement a set of recommendations to address gang violence. These recommendations are being piloted in four demonstration sites (Florence Firestone, Harbor Gateway, Monrovia Duarte, and Pacoima) and include the following overarching strategies:
The recommendations are being phased in over an 18-month period to lay a foundation in each of the four demonstration sites for both immediate and long term action and will result in recommendations for countywide application. Limited governmental funds necessitated that resources be allocated and more efficiently to achieve INITIATIVE goals. These recommendations assume a heavy reliance on the coordinated efforts of County departments, municipal partners, community organizations, and residents.
IVPP is a partnering with the CEO Office to provide data analysis and assessment support for various aspects of the initiative.
