In 2013, East Liberty Development, Inc. (ELDI) commissioned a crime study analysis to examine the linkages between lowered crime rates, increased property values and initiatives of ELDI. Numeritics, a Pittsburgh-based consulting practice, completed the analysis and offered insights to explain ELDI’s role in these developments.

Now, as East Liberty’s revitalization is increasingly in the spotlight, we wanted to take a closer look at the renewal and re-examine the causes behind it. In a series of white papers, Numeritics revisits their findings and expounds further, revealing the groundwork that lies underneath East Liberty’s current revival.

Today, our series continues with the third white paper, East Liberty’s Revitalization: Crime Strategy Implementation. In this paper, we answer the question; “what exactly did you do?

The goal of this white paper, the third in a series of six, is to summarize the implementation of ELDI’s unique and innovative strategies that helped reduce residential crime in East Liberty by 49% over a five-year period.
