NCPCV: The Story

“What is needed in our society is an organization that works to interrupt the process of violence before it becomes a tragedy.”

Bobby Kipper - 2020

This is a quote from Bobby Kipper the founder of National Center for Prevention of Community Violence on the mission and the purpose of NCPCV which began its operation in 2010.  NCPCV has an extensive history of providing guidance to community’s and schools on proven strategies to prevent violence.  It has risen to be one of America’s leading authorities on community violence reduction through training, publications and technical assistance.  NCPCV has had an impact both nationally and internationally.

With a combination of national experts, a powerful national board and operational partnership with institutions of higher academic education, NCPCV continues to blaze the path towards safer communities across the U.S. and beyond.
