Fight Crime: Invest in Kids
Founded in 1996, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids is a bipartisan, nonprofit anti-crime organization led by more than 3,000 police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors, victims of violence and leaders of police officer associations.
Our mission is to take a hard-nosed, skeptical look at the research about what really works-and what doesn't work-to keep kids from becoming criminals. We then put that information in the hands of policy-makers and the public. Among the strategies proven to be effective are early care and education programs for preschoolers, good schools, after-school programs and prevention of child abuse, as well as programs that nip delinquency in the bud by getting troubled kids back on track.
