Fight Crime: Invest in Kids is a national, bipartisan, nonprofit anti-crime organization of nearly 5,000 police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors, attorneys general and other law enforcement leaders and violence survivors. It operates under the umbrella of the nonprofit Council for a Strong America.
Our national office is located in Washington, D.C. We also operate state offices in California, Illinois, Maine, Michigan, Montana, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington.
Our members include the top law enforcement leaders in the country, including presidents of many state and national law enforcement associations. Among our crime survivor members are the parents of children killed at Columbine and other school shooting sites, survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing, and many others whose tragic encounters with crime are well known.
Fight Crime: Invest in Kids takes a hard-nosed look at crime prevention strategies, informs the public and policymakers about those findings, and urges investment in programs proven effective by research. Our organization focuses on high quality early education programs, prevention of child abuse and neglect, after-school programs for children and teens, and interventions to get troubled kids back on track.
We do not fund or operate any direct service programs for children. Funding for Fight Crime: Invest in Kids comes from foundations, corporations and individuals. Fight Crime: Invest in Kids accepts no funds from federal, state or local government agencies.
