City of Compton Mayor Aja Brown joined us live to talk about the city’s safety action plan to reduce gang violence.

The plan includes additional sheriff deputies to patrol the streets, the implementation of the Sheriff’s new “Town Sheriff” program that will assign a stationary Sheriff’s deputy liaison per council district to improve communication with residents, and the implementation of a new Community Policing Task Force to the City. The newly introduced Task Force is a proactive approach to crime and issues relevant to the City’s youth and has garnered local and federal support. The Community Policing Task Force is a partnership between the Sheriff’s, school police, code enforcement, city officials, community leaders, pastors, ex-gang members, Juvenile Court, D.A.’s unit, and the F.B.I..
