Study: Oakland's Ceasefire Program Curbs Shootings, Homicides
Violent crime is down overall in Oakland. Between 2011 and 2017, shootings with victims went from 710 to 340, a 52 percent drop.

Dr. Anthony A. Braga of Northeastern University and a team of researchers, however, compared areas of Oakland where Ceasefire was used and neighborhoods where it was not. The study, “Oakland Ceasefire Impact Evaluation,” also took into account population trends in Oakland and crime data in other California cities.

Among the key findings: Ceasefire is credited with a 31.5 percent drop in homicides involving a gun since it began in 2013. Shootings involving both gang members and non-gang members significantly decreased, but the decline was steeper among gang members. For example, Braga said the number of gang shootings in the two years before Ceasefire compared to four years after it was implemented dipped 43 percent. Non-gang member shootings were down 23 percent over the same period.

Of 12 cities throughout the state examined, the study authors said only two other cities, San Francisco and Stockton, experienced such significant reductions between 2010 and 2017. Richmond, East Palo Alto, Fresno, Sacramento and Long Beach were among the other cities.
