Press release from Gainesville Police Department
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Members of the Gainesville Police Department, Gainesville U.N.I.T.ED, have dedicated this month of December to gun violence awareness. We have collaborated with our neighbors to bring awareness to gun violence with the goal and focus on education, engagement, and mobilization towards reducing gun violence in our community.
On Friday, December 16, 2022, at 5:00 p.m., we will conclude the week of events with “A Night of Compassion.” This event will be a night of prayer and remembrance, which will take place outside of the Clarence R. Kelly Center, located at 1701 NE 8th Avenue. The program will include a welcoming, prayer, Chief Scott’s remarks, family and friends’ reflections, a moment of silence, closing, and benediction. The program will conclude at 6:00 p.m.
We wish to honor the victims that have lost their lives due to gun violence within Alachua County. We cordially invite all families and friends of those lost to gun violence, along with our neighbors, to join us in full for this special event. We are asking our neighbors to wear orange as it symbolizes the color of gun violence.
