Mayor Eric Adams and NYPD officials tout crime reduction success, launch new initiative to support at-risk residents

Mayor Eric Adams and officials with the NYPD and the Department of Small Business Services (SBS) were in Brooklyn Tuesday to tout the reduction in crime and to launch a new crime-prevention initiative that aims to offer resources to at-risk residents.

In an effort to cut crime, the city is taking a SBS truck to communities most impacted by gun violence. Starting in Brownsville on Nov. 14, the mobile unit is offering resources, such as employment opportunities.
