Community Alliance for Safety and Peace
AUDIO SLIDESHOW. 3:55 min, stereo sound. Based in the rough-and-tumble Hebbron neighborhood of this working-class California city of 150,000, Salinas police officers Jeffrey Lofton and Richard Lopez head up the Community Alliance for Safety and Peace, an ambitious program that aims to steer youth away from gang violence. The team’s approach encourages dialogue, cooperation and communication. * * * This multimedia presentation was a top three winner in the National Press Photographers Association's monthly competition.
