Channel 4 News ran a two-part story on gun violence and the disconnect between what offenders are doing and what judges are handing down as sentences in response to those crimes.  As your Neighborhood Advocate my hope is that you look at this story and you continue the conversation about where your voice as a community falls in this conversation.  Please know that my efforts as your Neighborhood Advocate are to take your concerns about these issues to the courts directly, to share your collective voice and to ensure that this neighborhood is doing its part to say NO to violent crime.

Please know that as your Neighborhood Advocate I am available to assist those in our community that are struggling with the after effects of crime (violent or not).  If you or someone you know in the FPSE community are dealing with the aftermath of crime and need assistance please contact me at the number, or e-mail below.

If you would like to participate in the Court or Victim Advocacy Teams, attend a training or have further questions about how I can help you as a victim of a crime, please contact me.
