The Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention held its final informational meeting on Wednesday, on a plan to reduce violence across the city. Around 50 people showed up to find out more about what’s being proposed and how they can help.

After months of waiting, the City of Milwaukee’s Office of Violence Prevention has released its plan to combat crime. The proposal looks to tackle violence as a public health issue. But not all city leaders are convinced the plan is moving Milwaukee in the right direction.

The city’s violence prevention plan is called the Blueprint for Peace. It was officially unveiled late last week.

Reggie Moore, the director of the Office of Violence Prevention, shared details of the proposal with aldermen on the Public Safety and Health Committee on Monday.
