One of the goals of the Justice & Safety Alliance is to bring a non-police centered focus to the discussion around crime prevention and public safety in Memphis and Shelby County. To gain clarity around issues of policing and crime, the JSA commissioned independent expert Dr. Duane T. Loynes Sr. to author a report titled Policing Reimagined, with contributions from Demetria Frank and Cardell Orrin. In addition to finding that increased funding for police budgets does not result in the deterrence of crime, this report details a number of evidence-based crime prevention and intervention alternatives that have proven to be more effective strategies for increasing community health and public safety.
