Washington State Institute for Public Policy
April 1997
Community Public Health and Safety Networks were created out of the 1994 Violence Reduction Act. Networks were charged with reducing violence, specifically youth violence, along with seven other "at-risk" behaviors. Fifty-three  networks were established and required to submit comprehensive plans to the Family Policy Council. These plans highlighted at least three at-risk behaviors to be targeted for reduction. Following approval of their plans, performance contracts were established that included a statement of work and specific performance measures. As the contracts progress, the state and networks will gain knowledge on the relative effectiveness of approaches. The report contains chosen risk factors, baseline rates, and targeted outcomes for 17 of the networks.
