About the Book
Policy Walking: Lighting Paths to Safer Communities, Stronger Families & Thriving Youth is the culmination of a lifelong career spent restoring fragile communities, pulling youth back from the edge, supporting vulnerable children and their families, and helping build communities that don’t produce crime. Policy Walking weaves the wisdom of years on the path with stories and profiles of compelling courageous, and memorable “walkers” met along the way.
Calhoun not only chronicles his own “policy walk,” but also highlights the pressing policy issues confronting communities today and the dedicated individuals who walk with those policies in communities all across the country. With insights into leadership and key lessons learned, Calhoun shares human stories of the creative preventative programs and approaches that strengthen communities, families, and youth. Those in the midst of this important work at all levels will see themselves in the pages and raw emotion of this both timely and timeless book.
About the Author
Sought-after moderator and keynote speaker, Jack Calhoun has been on his policy walk for more than 50 years working at every level – from community organizer to presidential appointee. An innovator and leader, Jack has launched several programs that have changed the face – and the policies – of prevention, intervention, support of youth and families, and rehabilitation of offenders. As the founder and president of the National Crime Prevention Council, Jack helped to redefine crime prevention from a focus on protection and detention to a mindset of hope: preventing crime, engaging youth and enhancing quality of life by building vital communities that don’t produce crime.
