The C.I.R.V. Gang Call-In
The C.I.R.V. Gang Call-In

This program is a city-wide crime strategy that takes a proactive approach to crime and violence prevention. On a monthly basis, the Director of the C.I.R.V. program collaborates with law enforcement to “call-in” individuals who have been identified, through various predictors, who are considered to be at high risk of committing violent crimes. This technique has proven to be very effective in reducing violence and crime.

Conference attendees who attend are able to get their licenses restored, attend a CQE clinic, sign up for health care, and have a host of other resources available to them.
