GPD seeks volunteers for One Community Violent Crime Workgroup

Press release from Gainesville Police Department

The Gainesville Police Department is seeking volunteers to serve on the GPD Violent Crime Workgroup.

The mission of the Workgroup is to curb violence, reduce the growing number of homicides and shootings in the city, and to develop specific, community-wide steps that citizens and leaders can take to make our community safer.

The Workgroup will be made up of community neighbors and businesses who will review the progress of GPD’s strategy and make recommendations on how our efforts to reduce gun violence can be enhanced. The Workgroup will also assist in identifying some of the underlying causes of violence in our community and offer suggestions on how to address these sources.

Those interested in serving on this workgroup should contact GPD Chief Inspector Jaime Kurnick at 352-393- 7787 or kurnickjl@cityofgainesville.org.
