Target 11: Group Violence Intervention unit working with Pittsburgh police to curb violence

With this recent uptick in violence, Target 11 investigator Rick Earle sat down with the man who runs the Group Violence Intervention unit in the city of Pittsburgh.

 

“My team is putting their lives on the line on a regular basis. The people that we are blessed to work with on our team, they love hard, they love the community and they are about the village,” said GVI Director Cornell Jones. “They’re trying to really make sure that these young people have a chance.”

Jones and 15 other civilian members in his unit work out in the community with at-risk individuals, attempting to steer them away from a life of crime.
