The peacemaking movement incorporates humanist values favoring alteration in the treatment of domestic violence, homelessness, and basic criminal justice policies. Peacemaking is highlighted through localized coalition building, as a basic response to everyday community concerns. This paper invokes the peacemaking framework in assessing the creation of citizen and industrial co-production of crime control activities. The analysis considers the development of grass roots community building action, as an alternative to bureaucratic government sponsored criminal justice functions and citizen action.
