Description: The Baltimore City Health Department is implementing Operation Safe Streets in two high-risk communities. One community is being selected solely based on crime prevalence and community investment in the project; one will be selected from among those in the Baltimore Police Department's Mini-District initiative. Operation Safe Streets is a community mobilization and outreach program based on CeaseFire, the highly successful Chicago program created by the School of Public Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The intervention targets both at-risk youth aged 15 to 24, through outreach and service connection, and the community as a whole, through a media campaign and community mobilization. CeaseFire was developed by public health practitioners to create behavior change through repetitive prevention messages and concrete services that support and give credibility to the message. This approach has also been successfully used by the Health Department to attack problems as diverse as syphilis and childhood lead poisoning. CeaseFire has achieved reductions of between 25% and 67% in the first year of operation in high violence communities.
