In 2016, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) was awarded a cooperative agreement to lead and provide training and technical assistance for the Office of Victims of Crime’s (OVC’s) Supporting Collective Healing in the Wake of Harm program, hereafter referred to as Collective Healing (CH). In 2017, IACP selected five police department grantees to develop and implement CH in their jurisdiction, including Baton Rouge, Houston, Minneapolis, Oakland, and Rapid City. RTI International was awarded a grant from the National Institute of Justice to conduct a baseline study and evaluability assessment of the CH, which used a mixed methods design of document review, site visit interviews, a capacity and network survey, and a stakeholder survey. This document provides high level results from the baseline study, including key successes, challenges, and lessons learned.
