Why Is Operation Ceasefire Struggling In Baltimore?

Operation CeasefireJune 3, 2015 – Segment 2

We continue our daily feature on programs in Baltimore and beyond that offer solutions to the turmoil our city is undergoing. We look at the Operation Ceasefire campaign in Baltimore, its successes and failures and where it is going from here. Operation Ceasefire is a problem-oriented policing initiative specifically aimed at youth gun violence, first implemented by criminologist David M. Kennedy in Boston in 1996.

We talk with: Clayton Guyton, Executive Director of the Rose Street Community Center and former correctional officer; Luke Broadwater, reporter at the Baltimore Sun, where he covers Baltimore’s City Hall and local politics; and David Miller, writer and Founder of Dare to Be King LLC.
