In June 2017, the Californians for Safety and Justice (CSJ) released a publication titled, Blueprint for Shared Safety. The Blueprint is based on a year of research and evaluation of its own and others’ successes in putting crime survivors and public safety at the center of their work. The Alliance for Safety and Justice (ASJ), CAPPS’s partner, is CSJ’s sister organization.
CSJ offers a framework of principles and practices to advance safety priorities. The framework focuses on investments that promote safe communities. The Blueprint says:
Shared Safety envisions a world in which everyone can attain safety and everyone takes responsibility for fostering it. Shared Safety is the pioneering work of diverse stakeholders who are rethinking how to understand, invest in, evaluate and achieve community safety.
The Blueprint provides a guide to advance CAPPS legislative and policy priorities.
