The Office of the District Attorney for the 19th Judicial District, Parish of East Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Senator John Kennedy has called for the metrics of success of the BRAVE program that resulted in a sustained 26% decrease in violent crime across our parish since the program began in 2012. Since 2012, overall violent crime has dropped 26% while youth crime has dropped 25%. This success is well-known across the U.S. as other communities have visited with us to try to replicate what we have done. It is estimated that since BRAVE, 80 less people have died in Baton Rouge to violence and another 80 spared a life of incarceration. More metrics can be found in the four years of BRAVE evaluation reports published at
