COLLABORATION & STAFFING

No one person, group, organization, department or agency has the responsibility or ability to prevent violence. Violence prevention requires multiple private, public, and community players to come together in a strategic and coordinated way. An interdisciplinary collaboration can be organized as a coalition, committee, network, or other form of public-private partnership, that serves as the central coordinating body.
