MANCHESTER- The city of Manchester is making progress in the effort to combat gang-related and gun-related crimes in the Queen City.
They say it's a three part initiative: awareness, deterrence and outreach.
"The methods employed here awareness, deterrence, outreach are imperially based methods that have proved to reduce and combat violence in communities across our country," said US Attorney, John Kacavas.
"We found there are two groups in Manchester, young people, who started gangs. They started perpetrating gang violence, shooting at each other and putting not only themselves at risk but the greater public," said Chief of Manchester Police David Mara.
The city plans to implement more outreach programs to guide gang members in a different direction. They also plan to prosecute them much harder. Police have seen some progress but say their work is far from over
