Urban Area Perspective: San Diego

By Matthew Harwood

It’s not illegal to hold radical, even violent, views if you don’t act on them. How are you engaging people at risk of violent radicalization?

It’s something we’re working on. We have a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, where we take a look at people we believe are susceptible, based on lifestyle, to radicalized thought and ideology, especially people of tender years. And we’re using a mentoring program, kind of modeled on Pulling Levers out of Boston (which delivers direct police outreach to violent, at-risk gang youth), to get these people into a place where they can get help before they get to that point.
