Invest in Kids
Invest in Kids is a national, bipartisan, nonprofit anti-crime organization of more than 5,000 police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors, attorneys general and other law enforcement leaders and violence survivors. Located in Washington, D.C., it operates California, Illinois, Maine, Michigan, Montana, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Washington. Its 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. The 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. 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. The Adams County Sheriff and more than 200 law enforcement leaders and crime survivors are members of the Fight Crime: Invest in Kids program.
