NYC – Gun Crime – Mayor de Blasio urged by community leaders to increase anti-violence funding amid shooting surge in northern Brooklyn

Dozens of Brooklyn community leaders called on Mayor de Blasio to increase funding for anti-violence and shooting prevention efforts after a spike in crime in the borough’s north precincts this year. There were 101 shooting incidents in Patrol Borough Brooklyn North the first half of this year – a 27.8% increase from the 79 shootings during the same period in 2018, according to NYPD stats. The number of shooting victims also increased from 98 to 118 during that time. Borough President Eric Adams and 26 community and faith leaders urged de Blasio to increase the budget for the Office to Prevent Gun Violence by 20% for more faith-based interventions, violence interrupters and civilian patrols. They also want the city to pump up funding in Brooklyn for Cure Violence, which embeds outreach workers in their communities to stop conflicts before they escalate. “Given the recent and alarming uptick in the number of violent incidents recently recorded in north Brooklyn, the fact that we are just beginning the summer months when crime typically rises…it is timely and appropriate that adequate funding be provided to combat this surge, before it becomes a crisis,” they wrote to de Blasio on July 3.  [full article]
