Violence Prevention

Project Longevity

Project Longevity is a research-based, three prong strategy to reduce group/gang related homicides and gun violence in the cities of Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport. Researchers from Yale University, University of New Haven, and John Jay College working with law enforcement help to identify violent group/gang members throughout each city. These violent group/gang members are called into a neutral location and given a consistent anti-violence message by community members, law enforcement and service providers.
