Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $855,800)

The proposal offers a strategy to address residential burglaries in Prince George’s County, Maryland that has been adopted in Europe and Australia.

This approach aims to reduce residential burglaries by alerting neighbors of a residential burglary and providing crime prevention materials to residents at increased risk, thereby creating a protective layer around the immediate neighborhood.

This study involves a cluster-randomized field trial to evaluate this approach, measuring two components of police effectiveness, namely crime reduction and citizen perspectives (including fear of crime and attitudes towards police).

This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law,“ and complies with Part 200, Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR, 200.210 (a) (14). CA/NCF
