    schema:description ""Violent crime tragically ruins lives and communities, yet we know how to stop it and help victims. Governments agree on how to get results at the United Nations, but do not act locally. Science and Secrets of Ending Violent Crime is the result of a lifetime career working to get violence prevention science applied and frustration with too many preventable tragedies. Irvin Waller explains the proven solutions that tackle the causes of violence, and, ways to persuade politicians to buy-in to invest in the appropriate solutions. Investing in effective violence prevention is more affordable and successful than policymakers think; a modest equivalent of 10 percent of what they spend on police, courts, and corrections will do it and often before the next election! Violence prevention is achievable because voters, contrary to what the media tells us, want much more than reaction, they want prevention. Irvin Waller shines a light on the challenges of violent crime, and shows how to reduce and ultimately stop it by considering how governments spend our money, manage our cities, and legislate our community safety. Waller brings the truth to the reader, increasing not only their knowledge of the problem at hand but introducing practical ways to get more involved in making our world free from violence." --"@en ;
