Finn Institute to Complete Gang Assessment

December 14, 2011 – With Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) funding through the U.S. Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Assistance and the Rosamond Gifford Foundation, in addition to support provided by the Central New York Community Foundation through the Salvation Army, the Finn Institute will continue to work with Onondaga County’s Community Intervention Committee (CIC) on the development of a comprehensive anti-gang initiative in Syracuse. Institute researchers will complete a gang assessment and also serve as the research partner to the CIC.  Project director Sarah McLean, the Institute’s Associate Director, said “we are very pleased to continue our work with the CIC. The CIC is committed to implementing effective strategies to reduce gang violence in Syracuse, and the gang assessment will provide the foundation to guide these efforts”.
