Today, a coalition of community leaders, business owners, law enforcement, and faith-based organizations gathered to celebrate the success of the anti-gang injunction that went into effect one year ago in Harris County, Texas. This major undertaking has yielded amazing results, including a 50% reduction in calls for service.
A special thanks to our partners who have put countless hours into this effort to ensure its success.
Here is what the Houston media had to say about the event and the progress that this community has made to date:
Miya Shay, a reporter for ABC 13, filed this report titled: “Anti-gang program labeled a success”
The Houston Chronicle’s Brian Rogers wrote this piece following the event and after having talked directly with some residents: “‘Most Dangerous’ Apartments Now Safe”
Bill Stamps from KUHF 88.7 FM spoke with Executive Director Flynann Janisse after the press event for this on-air piece: “Apartment Complex Says Goodbye to Gangs” (article and audio)
