I spoke about this program quite a bit this morning, and I wanted to share this link with you all. Please educate yourself about how this impacts our city, and let's continue dialog about this!
"To successfully fight crime and create hope, every member of our community must come together with one shared purpose and focus. The Safe Streets Initiative has created partnerships that have led to direct engagement with offenders by the moral voice of the community—family members, law enforcement, faith leaders, and others. Just as important as reducing neighborhood violence, and as a result of commitment of all our partners, this initiative has yielded reconciliation and trust between residents and police.” - Tom Barrett
