Public Safety: Mayor Unveils Public Safety Initiative for the Southeast Sector
Today Mayor Edwin M. Lee joined Supervisor Malia Cohen, Police Chief Greg Suhr, the City Administrator’s Office, community and religious leaders and service providers to announce a public safety initiative to address a recent increase in homicides in the City’s Southeast neighborhoods. The initiative, Interrupt, Predict and Organize (IPO), includes short, mid and long term strategies to reduce violence.
“We need to immediately interrupt the violence in order to keep our youth and our communities safe, and so that we can continue to work on longer term solutions to end violence in our neighborhoods,” said Mayor Lee.
“Building strong, safe neighborhoods and creating opportunities for our City’s residents are among my highest priorities, and we must take action in the short term while building partnerships for the long term to see results and keep San Francisco one of the safest cities in the nation.” Read more.
