Lafayette Chief Patrick Flannelly Joins Top Law Enforcement Leaders On Council to Curb Crime Through Investments in Kids


DATE: January 19th, 2018

Washington, DC - This month, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, an anti-crime organization of over 5,000 police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors and violence survivors, announced the organization’s new National Leadership Council comprised of nearly 30 elite law enforcement leaders and violence survivors from around the country that will help advise Fight Crime: Invest in Kids to continue leading efforts to advance evidence-based solutions that steer kids away from crime and towards productive lives. Lafayette Police Chief Patrick Flannelly is a founding member of the council.

“I am excited to have Chief Flannelly join the Council. Since joining Fight Crime: Invest in Kids years ago, Chief Flannelly has used his expertise and firsthand experiences in law enforcement to educate policymakers on how we can make our communities safer by ensuring kids get a good start in life and never enter down a path towards crime,” said Josh Spaulding, the organization’s Acting National Director. “As a National Leadership Council member, Chief Flannelly will be a leader among the organization’s more than 5,000 members, and ensure the organization is able to continue educating policymakers and the public on evidence-based solutions that steer kids towards crime-free lives so we can prioritize our investments in the programs that work.”

Founded in 1996, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids takes a hard-nosed look at the strategies proven to reduce crime. Armed with research, members make the case for solutions that cut crime and put kids on the path to productive lives. The organization promotes smart, bipartisan state and federal solutions to reduce crime, such as evidence-based, voluntary parent coaching programs for new parents that prevent child abuse and neglect; high-quality early childhood education that increases educational success and graduation rates; stronger K-12 education goals and after-school programs that give kids a clear path toward productive futures and away from crime; and proven coaching programs that strengthen families and get troubled kids back on track.
