Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea unveiled their End Gun Violence Plan Friday.
They say the plan will utilize the NYPD and community organizing to ensure the safety of residents across the five boroughs.
Commissioner Shea says the NYPD will shift patrol resources to areas with high gun violence and organize gun buy-back events.
The plan will also call for increased coordination with Cure Violence and reorganize the Community Affairs Bureau to provide more engagement in high- violence areas.
“For seven years, we have made this city safer through the NYPD’s close partnership with communities and by recognizing the leadership of community leaders, organizations, and clergy,” says Mayor de Blasio. “We will continue to build peace in our communities and strengthen the relationship between communities and the NYPD.”
The mayor also announced that phase four is on track for Monday, July 20.
It will include low-risk outdoor arts and entertainment, professional sports with no spectators and media production, including movies, music and television production.
The mayor added that 40 blocks of new Open Restaurants on Open Streets will roll out.
Alternate side parking regulations will resume Monday, July 20. If the street has multiple alternate side parking days, drivers only have to move their car on the last day posted on the sign.
