The recent rash of violent gun crimes across the city and in the 15th Aldermanic District has prompted newly elected Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II to create the Community Crisis Response Team (CCRT).
The team – composed of community activists and Alderman Stamper – has a mission to assist and inform the community and to foster a stronger, more vibrant and healthier community. “The CCRT will go through neighborhoods proactively to prevent crime and to serve as a conduit to vital resources,” Alderman Stamper said.
“The CCRT will stress crime prevention while educating our community about how to get the fastest responses from the authorities and how to hold these same authorities accountable for slow or no responses at all,” Alderman Stamper said.
Alderman Stamper said the CCRT will provide work opportunities and resources “to better all within the 15th District. “The CCRT aims to help our community by being in direct contact with our community at the street level,” he said.
Please contact Alderman Stamper’s office at 286-3771 for more information about the CCRT.
