Executive Summary

Thirty two AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 2,500 volunteers to improve levels of neighborhood guardianship and reduce victim attractiveness/susceptibility in Midtown, Jefferson East, and three other targeted areas of Detroit. Beginning October 1, 2013 and ending September 30, 2016, the AMUS program expects five to ten percent reductions in crime annually in each target area. This project is a Governor's-Mayor's Initiative CNCS focus area, and will combine the crime targeting capabilities of CompStat with the community organizing capabilities of AmeriCorps members. The CNCS investment of $378,871 will be matched with $234,246.
