Shafiq R.F. Abdussabur is a law enforcement officer in Connecticut with over fourteen years of community-based police training and experience. In 2002 he founded CTRIBAT Institute for Social Development Inc., which offers life skill workshops to boys and girls between nine and seventeen years old. The CTRIBAT 2006 Summer Pilot posted an impressive 400 percent reduction in firearm-related violence in its neighborhood of operation.

In January 2007, Abdussabur was appointed coordinator and program writer of the New Haven Street Outreach Workers Program, a proactive social development program aimed at reducing violent crime among youth and young adults. Within its first five months, New Haven posted an 86 percent reduction in homicides. During that two-year period, Abdussabur served as the chief executive officer for the New Haven Police Department under Police Chief Francisco Ortiz Jr. In June of 2008, the New Haven Street Outreach Workers Program was awarded the All-American City Award in Tampa, Florida.
