Mayor Elicker released the following statement regarding the overnight incidents in the Elm City:
Cities across the nation are experiencing a rise in violent crime and homicides, and New Haven is no different,” said Mayor Justin Elicker. “In collaboration with the Police Chief and across city departments we’re taking an all hands on deck approach to curbing violence in our city. Last week, Chief Dominguez, CSA Dr. Dalal, and I presented our coordinated approach to combating this national trend of increased violence. We have expanded the reach of the Shooting Task Force to include more neighboring communities and increased resources. Project Longevity and Project Safe neighborhood are working to keep returning citizens out of trouble. We’re expanding summer programming for young people and dedicating more funding for street outreach workers who specialize in violence interruption. We’re also engaging in a full-court press to get services to those most in need, particularly our re-entry population—which is why we opened our re-entry center earlier this year.
Every life lost is a tragedy; I was at the scene this morning and I’m working day and night to keep our city safe.”Mayor Elicker
