A project of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, SNUG Violence Prevention (GUNS spelled backwards) is one of the 11 statewide programs that follow the Cure Violence Model aimed at reducing and preventing shootings and violence. The program engages residents, private industry, and community-based organizations.
SNUG staff will help identify and diffuse community “hot spots” with a focus on identifying youth who are gang members or who are at-risk for joining gangs, providing the mentorship and leadership necessary to break the cycle of violence.
