This is not a strategy to forgive offenders for serious criminal activity committed in the past. It is a promise to vigorously prosecute repeat, violent, and/or group offenders who continue to engage in violent activity. It is an offer from the community (HPCAV) to assist those who want to change their lifestyles by delivering resources.
The High Point initiative has both short and long-term goals. The short-term goal is to reduce violent crime through strategic prosecution and to deter others by notifications. The long-term goal is to bring all "players" to the table and address, through strategic planning, the underlying issues that contribute to violent behavior.
The High Point initiative is a comprehensive community-wide strategy. It has helped redefine the relationship between law enforcement and the community.
