We begin the week with an interview with author, professor and criminologist David Kennedy, who developed the Operation Ceasefire group violence intervention in the 1990s. Kennedy, who introduced his unorthodox but highly successful approach to crime prevention in Baltimore in the late 1990s and left under the Martin O’Malley mayoral administration, has been recruited to return to Baltimore by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.
