The Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission: A National Model
The Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission: A National Model for Violence Prevention
Publication Date: 2021
Since 2005, the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission (MHRC) has combined the efforts of criminal justice, public health, and community stakeholders to gain a better understanding of homicide through strategic problem analysis, develop innovative and effective responses and prevention strategies, and help focus prevention and intervention resources. Driving this work is the understanding that homicides are preventable. The MHRC received a COPS Office grant to develop a training on how to establish and run a homicide review commission; this training has been published by the COPS Office as the National Homicide Review Training and Technical Assistance Project: Homicide Review Training Manual. This white paper reviews the development, implementation, and assessment of the site-based trainings on which the manual is based.
