Mayor Warren speaks on violence throughout City
On Wednesday night Mayor Lovely Warren released the following statement about the ongoing violence throughout the City of Rochester over the last couple of weeks.
“The violence we are seeing in our City and across our nation is beyond reprehensible. While the perpetrators and victims of this violence are known to each other in the vast majority of these crimes. The cycle of retaliation must end. Those engaged in this violence are giving those who want to see our community suffer exactly what they want. It is unacceptable. I have directed Police Chief Herriott-Sullivan to immediately implement additional targeted enforcement efforts to protect our community. I know that she will work tirelessly, along with our entire police department, to ensure the safety of our families and our neighborhoods.”
This comes as the City of Rochester had its 11th homicide of 2021 and has seen an increase in violent crime since January.
The Rochester Police Department along with Mayor Warren will be holding a press conference on Thursday to address how the city is planning on fighting the violence.
