Violence reduction in Ecuador & Colombia

This article focuses on Ecuador and the city of Cali, Colombia, two success stories for violence reduction in Latin America. Ecuador has dropped its homicide rate from 18 per 100,000 to 6 since 2010, second best in the region, with major investments in police salaries, training, technology, and anti-corruption measures. Cali has taken an epidemiological approach to its violence since the 1990s, focusing both policing and social programs on the most problematic neighborhoods and networks of offenders.
