Podcast — Are violence interrupters more effective than police?

Podcast: Beyond Black History Month, 1010WINS & CBS880
Black History Month happens every February. But the Black community’s impact on America goes way beyond a mere 28 days. This podcast delves into Black history all year round, while also providing nuanced conversations about race and inequality in the U.S.

Jeffrey Butts: “Funders, over time, historically have funded police research far more than community-based violence research. And you ask someone ‘where’s the evidence for violence prevention,’ and some graduate student is assigned to go in and search the literature, they come back with all these policing studies. But, that doesn’t mean policing is THE BEST way to reduce violence. It’s just the way that’s most often researched.”
