There was a statistically significant reduction of the total number of calls for service in the treatment areas relative to the control.
Also, when compared to gun homicide trends in other midsize California cities, the reduction in homicides in Stockton could be associated with the program. Drawing upon over 500 entries to the Tilley Award since its inception in 1999, the book examines what can be achieved by problem-oriented policing, what conditions are required for its successful implementation and what has been learned about resolving crime and disorder issues. Four of the studies were randomized experiments; six were quasi-experimental designs. Design response strategies based on what was learned from analyzing the problem 4.

This focused deterrence strategy in New Orleans, Louisiana, aims to reduce gang violence and homicide. When funding ends, the project does too, yet the potential problem may well remain.

A geographically focused policing strategy intended to reduce violent crime in high-crime areas using problem-oriented policing and directed patrol techniques.
