The team responds to shootings and homicides while acting as a liaison between the Syracuse community, the Syracuse Police Department, and Upstate Medical Center.

This theory was designed highlighting the concept that criminal activity specific to neighborhood violence has an addictive nature similar to alcohol, gambling, and substance abuse. Mr. Jennings-Bey believes that participants of gang/criminal activity are in need of respite and rehabilitation before they can be mainstreamed back into society.

Mr. Jennings-Bey is a published author, mentor, consultant, and motivational speaker. His areas of expertise are trauma, grief and loss, depression, gang culture awareness, maladaptive behaviors, street addiction, and non-traditional intervention approaches specific to the street/gang culture.
