[ARCHIVED] Video: Sheriff Knezovich & concerned Community Leaders Coming Together to Address Youth Violence

Sheriff Knezovich & concerned Community Leaders Coming Together to Address Youth Violence

SAVE – Sheriff’s Anti-Violence Effort, reaching out to our youth, letting them know their Community cares and stands willing to help them.

Crime and Violence only ends in one of 2 ways, Prison and Death.

Education – Jobs - Housing: SAVE is about helping kids involved in violent criminal activity realize that if you spend the time going through these programs and drop the lifestyle, you can have all three of these things.

If we can get our Youth who are out killing and committing violent crimes to realize this, to reach out and turn them away from Violence and Crime, we break that cycle. This is not a “soft on crime” viewpoint.

This is our Community leaders taking a proactive approach to try and reach our Youth before they commit a violent act that will cost them their life or end with a harsh prison sentence. If they “choose” to continue their criminal ways and commit violent crimes, they will be held accountable.

 We need to heal our Community and come together with the common goal of saving our Youth.
