Operation Ceasefire is a partnership-based violence reduction strategy that employs respectful, direct communication with youth and young adults at highest risk of violence. The primary goal of Operation Ceasefire is to reduce shootings, but it has also been shown to reduce recidivism among participants and improve community-police relations.
Operation Ceasefire is an element of the City's Marshall Plan on Public Safety. The Marshall Plan Committee, comprised of members of the criminal justice system and community leaders, has been examining data related to Stockton's crime challenges and made the recommendation to implement Operation Ceasefire, a program that was successful in Stockton in the 1990's.
A Town Hall Meeting was held at Progressive Community Church to introduce the community to Operation Ceasefire. The following are links to documents that were referenced during the meeting:
