Cuomo unveils Central Brooklyn jobs program, meant to combat gun violence


Not long after sounding the alarm about rising gun violence across the state, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a new jobs program to stem the issue in Central Brooklyn, aimed at preventing crime before it happens.

“One of the most important strategies is to get young people before the fact,” Cuomo said at Lenox Road Baptist Church in Flatbush on Wednesday. “Before they enter the pipeline of the system, because once they’re in the system, that pipeline only leads to one place.”
