Nearly $3.6 million to fight gun crime and gangs

    Stopped gun and gang valence before it starts

    The Federal government has announced $3.57 million in funding to help stop gun crime and gang violence before it starts. Money will be provided over the next five years for a variety of initiatives, including support for law enforcement and prevention programs. The amount comes from the $390 million federal funding announcement made on May 8th.  RNC Chief Pat Roche was at today’s announcement in St. John’s. He says “as the dedicated members of the RNC combat organized crime networks across our province, it is critical that they have the tools required to support their investigations. In recent years, we have seen our police service dismantle a firearm manufacturing operation, target drug trafficking networks, and remove illegal weapons from our communities.”
