Reducing Violent Crime

Individuals identified in social networks or groups associated with violent crime in Kansas City appeared Wednesday at the first “call-ins” held by the Kansas City No Violence Alliance (KC NoVA). Those attending were asked to help the community stop violence and were offered social services to help them. Capt. Joseph McHale, project manager for KC NoVA, said the call-ins were an important early step in the new effort to reduce violent crime in Kansas City: “Our goal is to get the message to the streets of Kansas City that violence must stop. Any new violence will become the focus of KC NoVA.” > MORE
