New Haven Project Longevity Becomes the Second Group Violence Intervention Site in the Country to Host a Call-In Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Yesterday evening New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker, Police Chief Otoniel Reyes, members of the New Haven Police Department, Stacey Spell, and Archie Generoso from Project Longevity, public safety partners, and community members held the first Project Longevity Call-in in a year.

“In New Haven, like many urban centers amid the pandemic, we have seen an increase in violent crime. It is a tragedy when we lose community members prematurely,” reminded Mayor Justin Elicker. “Our Police Department, Youth Department, and other city staff are working hard to address the violence and provide the support to those who are affiliated with violent street groups. Call-ins are only one tool we are using to engage community members who are at-risk for involvement in violence. When I spoke with the young men last night, I made clear both that the violence must stop and that our team and I will do everything in our power to support and help them choose a different path.”
