The Mayor’s Community Based Crime Reduction (CBCR) Program is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance. The program has three key goals: reduce crime, increase mutual trust, and improve community safety in focus neighborhoods within Mid-west Jacksonville (Grand Park, New Town, Durkeeville and LaVilla).  Additionally, the Mayor’s Community Based Crime Reduction Program is committed to connecting Jacksonville residents to resources that impact and improve quality of life

Addressing crime should be a community-wide effort, so the Mayor’s Community Based Crime Reduction Program approach is innovative, data-driven and inclusive of guidance from community residents, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and the CBCR Cross Sector Strategic Planning Team.  The program’s Cross Sector Strategic Planning Team is comprised of leaders from local organizations who are directly involved in the ongoing work of revitalizing and making Mid-west Jacksonville neighborhoods safer.
