HPCAV Accepts FBI Award

FBI AwardOn May 1, 2015, HPCAV was presented the 2014 FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award at FBI Headquarters, Washington, DC by Director James B. Comey.  HPCAV was selected as the organization in North Carolina to receive this recognition.  Board President Gretta Bush, Board members Robert Martin and Chris Martin, Executive Director Jim Summey, and High Point Police Chief Marty Sumner were there to receive the award.

“This year’s honorees have distinguished themselves in remarkable ways through their hard work, their leadership, and their strength of character,” said Director Comey. “They are ordinary citizens, but what they have accomplished is nothing short of extraordinary.”

“We are so honored to receive this award,” said Gretta Bush, HPCAV Board President. “After all these years of working together, it is so nice to see our efforts recognized.”

This special award was created in 1990 as a way to honor individuals and organizations for their efforts in combating crime and violence in America.  Nominations are submitted by area FBI Field Offices.

High Point Community Against Violence was formed in 1997.

Focused Deterrence Works

Preliminary 2014 year end statistics from the High Point Police Department show, once again, that the Focused Deterrence model successfully reduces crime.

Since we started using this model in 1997, High Point’s violent crime is down 67% even though our population has increased by 44%.

Yes, we still have violent crimes take place here.  But we continue to work towards less crime and making High Point a safer place for everyone.  We’re getting there!

 

1100 and counting

We did the math last week and since 1998, High Point Police Department, NC Probation and Parole and HP Community Against Violence have confronted 1109 individuals with our message to “Stop the Violence.”  We work in five areas and here is the numbers break down for each:

Repeat violent crime offenders:  975

Gang and robbery offenders:  15

Juvenile offenders:  24

Drug Market intervention offenders:  80

Domestic Violence offenders, our newest area:  15

Meanwhile, High Point’s population has grown 39% while our violent crime has gone down 54%.  Our rate of recidivism is approximately 10%.  That means about 90% of our offenders do not reoffend.

This means High Point is a safer place for everyone!
