Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces actions to reduce the rising tide of violent crime in America. Those actions are the reinvigoration of “Project Safe Neighborhoods”. The program has been historically successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make neighborhoods safer for everyone. The FBI says the crime rate has risen over the past two years by seven percent, and the homicide rate has risen by more than 20 percent. US Attorney Jay Town says the program also addresses prevention, deterrence, and youth programs.
