Community Risk Reduction, Goal vs. Reality

All public safety entities have a goal to reduce the risk to the communities they serve. Unfortunately, Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is far too often a goal, rather than a reality. Some of the problems associated with these CRR programs are; funding, personnel, poor morale, time constraints, lack of interest, mismanagement, etc. Some organizations try their best, but find it difficult to group all of the great things they are doing to optimize their results. This is why we created Virtual Community Risk Reduction.

Virtual Community Risk Reduction is an organized, cost effective, and metrically based way for any size organization to have a high quality Community Risk Reduction program. It is tailored to the organization, providing your high quality information to your communities, while gathering the valuable information you need.

How Does Virtual Community Risk Reduction Work?

 

First of all, it starts with a short survey that goes out to your community.

 

 

 

 

Depending on how the survey questions are answered, a customized report will be generated for each person taking the survey. This report gives the safety information you would like your community to receive. In addition, it also includes links to your existing videos, pictures, or articles.

 

 

 

 

Once they receive their report, you have given your community the information you want them to have. Most important, they can also request more information directly from you.

 

Metrically Based Community Risk Reduction

 

 

Now comes the real magic. Virtual CRR collects the information from these surveys. With this information, you can better understand the needs of your community. As a result, it lets you know which area has the biggest risk as it pertains to each question.

 

 

 

This information is shown in graph form or on a map. It can also be downloaded in csv format for your future use.
