Adams doubles down on plan for ‘plainclothes anti-gun unit’

1 00:00:00,150 –> 00:00:05,370 >> I’m going to put in place a plainclothes antigun unit to go after the guns and gangs. 2 00:00:05,370 –> 00:00:11,040 They go together. Number two we need to be clear. Change the eco system of public safety 3 00:00:11,040 –> 00:00:16,260 . I’m going to empower my crisis management teams all of the hotspots in my 4 00:00:16,260 –> 00:00:21,450 presence. Those are locations where you have violence particularly gun violence. We’re going to give them the 5 00:00:21,450 –> 00:00:27,540 tools to go underground to prevent it as well as give those young people opportunities 6 00:00:27,540 –> 00:00:31,740 because it can’t be just heavy handed policing is giving opportunities. 7 00:00:31,740 –> 00:00:37,680 >> And number three which I think is very important. We’re going to have a real jobs program 8 00:00:37,680 –> 00:00:43,230 to look at those areas that are high crime areas and high crime numbers and be proactive on 9 00:00:43,230 –> 00:00:48,450 how we go and pull those young people to do precision resources not only 10 00:00:48,450 –> 00:00:49,440 in policing.
