FAQ

Why does CrimeSolutions.gov include “No Effects” programs and practices?

"No Effects” programs and practices have strong evidence to indicate they do not achieve their intended outcomes. Programs and practices with "No Effects" evidence ratings either failed to produce any intended change or they produced negative effects. In cases where negative effects were found, CrimeSolutions.gov profiles for programs and practices will idntify and describe observed negative effects. CrimeSolutions.gov includes “No Effects” programs and practices to inform policy makers and practitioners about the current status of available evaluation evidence before planning or implementing similar efforts.
