The mission of the Office of Violence Prevention (OVP) is to significantly reduce violence in the City of Stockton through the implementation of data-driven, partnership-based violence prevention and reduction programs and strategies rooted in best practices.

In addition to the Operation Ceasefire and Operation Peacekeeper programs, the OVP coordinates inter-agency working partnerships with community leaders including clergy, gang outreach, public and community service providers, and collaborates with other stakeholders committed to reducing violence.

The initial OVP program emphasis is Operation Ceasefire, a partnership-based violence reduction strategy that uses respectful, direct communication with highest risk youth and young adults. Stockton's Ceasefire approach is based upon the nationally-known, evidence-based "Operation Ceasefire" strategy that has produced multi-year, community-wide reductions in serious violence in cities across the country.
