violence prevention

While the number of shootings and other violent crimes seems to fluctuate year to year in Cincinnati, as of mid-year violent crime appears to be trending down. Last year City Council allocated $250,000 in human service funding to go toward anti-violence programs. That included in-school violence prevention, coaching and the creation of youth councils.

Cincinnati Council could vote Wednesday on a proposal to spend $250,000 for violence prevention efforts in the city.

The city's Human Services Advisory Committee approved the funding proposals in September, and council's Human Services, Youth and Arts Committee unanimously approved the proposals Monday.
