A pioneering scheme of Welsh, the Cardiff Model for Violence Prevention collects details secretly at A&Es about happenings, disclosing the unknown problem area to the police. According to the US Department of Justice half of violent mishap remains unreported which made the prevention difficult.

The CDCP which provide protection to the residents of US from any kind of security, health and safety threats has created a specific website along with an enhancing toolkit for assisting the agencies to implement the model across the country.
The professor of Crime and Security Research Institute of Cardiff University, Jonathan Shepherd said, “ For communities across the United States faced with the human tragedies and heavy costs of violence, this tried and tested approach holds great promise. Implementation is certain to generate further lessons on how the model should be used and will help jurisdictions elsewhere to benefit.”.
After fixing the approval, in the US, Professor Jonathan Shepherd told over all the concerns it had reached t “major milestone ”
After comparing the outcomes in Cardiff in the cases of the violent mishap the CDCP adopted the model in 14 similar cities.
