Controlling Community Violence -- Since July 2000, UWP's Criminal Justice Department has sponsored the Controlling Community Violence Program (CCV), which serves offenders in southeastern Wisconsin who have been convicted of domestic violations, battery, disorderly conduct, and criminal damage. Offenders are referred to the CCV program as
an important alternative to imprisonment. The purpose of the program is to teach offenders how to
handle, and deal with conflict before it escalates to abuse. The CCV program is an excellent example
of UWP's connection to the local community.
