Rocky Fork Lake Area Safety and Advancement Project (RFL-ASAP)
Researchers from the Voinovich School and other Ohio University departments worked with RFL-ASAP to provide research and consulting for the Byrne Criminal Justice Federal Planning Grant. Resulting from the efforts, the Board of Highland County Ohio Commissioners has been awarded funds from the U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance - Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program to develop an evidence-based, data driven, community-oriented plan to improve public safety and spur economic growth in the Rocky Fork Lake region of our Highland County, Ohio. After successfully completing the plan, the community-wide project recently received funding from BJA to begin implementation. Ohio University is proud to continue as the research partners on this important initiative.
