New Haven holds first call-in for Project Safe Neighborhood

March 17, 2021

Media Coverage

Mayor Justin Elicker, The New Haven Police Department, and the Department of Justice are working together to launch the first call-in for Project Safe Neighborhood since the Covid-19 pandemic started.

Since the pandemic struck our state, there has been a significant uptick in violent crime.

"In 2020, we saw an increase in violence that we hadn't seen in probably the past decade, where our shootings and our nonfatal shootings and our homicides were up from years past" says New Haven Police Chief Renee Dominguez.*

Without plans after release, many felons become victims or perpetrators of violence, noted Holly Wasilewski, a retired New Haven cop who now serves as reentry and community outreach coordinator for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

"Let's close this revolving door,” Wasilewski said.

NHPD Assistant Chief Karl Jacobson said police are getting back to meeting face to face with the at-risk population recently released from incarnation.**
