Minneapolis City Council member Cam Gordon told KSTP he is excited the crime prevention grants are starting to go out and the city will follow up down the road to see how things progress. “You can turn lives around, and we have done that at the church for many years,” Farrar said. “But it takes a continual investment into education, trade skills and just positive mentoring and letting those kids know they’re loved and that we care.”
“It’s hard for us as a city to dig into the long-term impacts it might have in preventing long-term problems and violence,” Gordon said. “Because it’s always hard to know what you prevented because it didn’t necessarily happen, but nonetheless, we will try to see how successful it was and how well it worked.” Farrar said prevention programs are a philosophy he wholeheartedly supports.
