Homicide Review Commissions review homicides from a multi-level, multi-disciplinary, and multi-agency perspective and provide recommendations for reducing homicide to police and community organizations (CUPH-MHRC).
Homicide Review Commissions, as implemented in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, are a suggested strategy to reduce homicides (US DOJ-COPS 2010). Districts which have implemented the program demonstrated a substantial drop in homicides compared to districts without the program (US DOJ-COPS 2010). However, additional evidence is needed to confirm effects.
