Sample Indicators of Safety Project Performance

The following list is intended to suggest a range of indicators and measures that safety partnerships might use to assess their performance. LISC CSI recommends that indicators be selected upon examination of the partnerships’ specific theory of change, and that scale be adjusted to reflect a plausible range of influence of the partners’ work. (For example, an effort to address nuisance properties on one block might not result in a precinct-wide reduction in violence, but it may contribute to notable reductions in calls for service or vandalism incidents within a 2-block radius of the target area.)
