Since 2005, the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission 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. This training manual lays out a series of steps, grouped into ten modules for law enforcement and community service agencies to follow in creating homicide review commissions in their own communities. The recommendations, methods, and strategies provided can be adapted for different contexts, locations, and for other crime and public health problems.
