Impact and Partnerships

To amplify impact and awareness, the Miller Center leverages expertise from strategic partnerships in law enforcement, counter-terrorism, homeland security, community relations, and academia.

CPR Process

  • The mission is achieved through individualized site assessments of a given community’s situation and security needs, then adjusting deliverables to meet those needs.
  • The work performed is tailored to the needs of the individual communities.
  • Site assessments are only performed after an invitation from either a vulnerable community, a government entity, or both.

Deliverables have included:

  • Conducting research in the form of extensive interviews
  • Developing and implementing training based on that research
  • Sharing best practices identified from other sites
  • Introducing similarly situated officials from different sites to share common challenges and develop common approaches
  • Engaging in follow-up visits and programming
  • Exposing select officials and community members to the history of the Holocaust and genocide prevention efforts through strategic partnerships, most notably with the International March of the Living
