Newark police launch 'Safe Summer' planPosted: Updated:
Community leaders and police say they hope that Newark's "Safe Summer" plan can help the Brick City get a handle on crime this summer.
Part of the plan calls for increased police patrols in trouble spots. It also includes stricter enforcement of the 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew for minors.
Officials say curfew violators will be taken to places like Calvary Gospel Church where volunteers will try to steer them toward job and recreation opportunities before releasing them to their parents.
More details of the "Safe Summer" plan are set to be released Friday afternoon.
