DCI is now the Safe Communities Institute

The USC Price School of Public Policy is proud to launch the Safe Communities Institute (SCI), which continues the more than 60-year tradition of executive education for law enforcement professionals that began with the Delinquency Control Institute (DCI) in 1946.

SCI engages research, interdisciplinary education, and collaboration to advance sustainable “whole-of-community” public safety strategies, policies, and programs.
