The Policy Board is a collective decision making body composed by representatives from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) country missions in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras; United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime - Regional Office for Central America and the Caribbean in Panama (UNODC-ROPAN); the Department of Public Security of the Organization of American States (OAS), and the InfoSegura program.

After three weeks analyzing the 12 Pilot Policy Projects generated by participating teams of the Academy for Security Analysis, the Policy Board selected six PPPs that will advance into execution stage with $55,000 from the Academy of Security Analysis.

By design, all PPPs are small scale projects aligned to the institutional priorities and resources of the implementing agents. All PPPs generated by the Academy for Security Analysis rely on Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) in order to rigorously assess the impact of the proposed policy interventions. In doing so, the Academy seeks to promote best practices and evidence-based decision-making on citizen security and violence prevention.

If interested in exploring a partnership to replicate or escalate any of the PPPs of the Academy for Security Analysis, please send an email to infoaas@jjay.cuny.edu.
