De Blasio to expand violence interrupter program to Queens precinct

In his morning address this Wednesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said he’s expanding the violence interrupters programs and other community initiatives in southeast Queens to stave off spikes in crime and gun violence.  

De Blasio said the $1.1 million investment will expand the Crisis Management System (CMS) network of violence interrupters into the 105th Precinct, which comprises the Laurelton, Rosedale, and Springfield Gardens neighborhoods, building on the city’s Safe Summer NYC Plan.
