Research demonstrates that S.O.S. is effective at decreasing shootings

Save Our Streets Crown Heights is delighted to share with you an evaluation of S.O.S. that reports that shooting rates have decreased as a result of our efforts. 

The report, "Testing a Public Health Approach to Gun Violence," conducted by the Center for Court Innovation, took place over 29 months and shows that comparison neighborhoods had 20% higher rates of gun violence than our neighborhood did.
