Chicago recruits CeaseFire group to help reduce crime

CeaseFire Illinois, a group that works against violence, is being recruited by the city of Chicago as part of a pilot program to help reduce crime in two police districts, one on the West Side and the other on the South Side.

The city will give the group a one-year grant for $1 million to hire 40 “interrupters” who will mediate conflicts in the Ogden and Grand Crossing districts, where gun violence has spiked.

I certainly wouldn’t get in between two fighting Bellcurviuses for free, and it would take a lot more than $25,000 a year to convince me.
