VRI

Mayor Pugh walks with City agency leaders, community leaders, and Police District commanders in the Harwood neighborhood on Greenmount Avenue
Each and every day of the work week, leaders from every City agency join me in meeting with Police District Commanders as part of our Violence Reduction Initiative (VRI) to identify and develop solutions to neighborhood issues that have the potential to lead to violence and crime. Once a week we walk throughout a specific neighborhood to meet with community leaders and residents to see first-hand the problems that threaten the safety of citizens and their quality of life. This initiative, along with our bi-monthly “Call to Action” meetings, is leading to clear and positive results. Crime continues to decline in every category: homicides are down 20%; non-fatal shootings are down 12%, overall violent crime is down 16%, burglaries are down 28%, and aggravated assaults are down 12%. Overall, total crime in the City is down 17% compared to the same period last year. We will continue to be relentless in our efforts to reduce crime and create a City worthy of all our citizens.
