Boston officials announce plan to curb summer youth violence

Boston officials today announced a sweeping plan to curb summer violence among the city’s youth by expanding recreational and job programming and making police more visible.

“I have directed my summer safety teams to do more this year,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino said in a statement. “We will be more proactive, more visible, and more available to the public than ever before. We will not tolerate anyone trying to disrupt summer in Boston with violence.”
