The approach to tackling youth violence in Northeast Ohio involves not just police and the courts, but a broad network of organizations that focus on prevention and treatment. It views youth violence not just as a crime, but as a public health issue that affects everyone. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the damage caused by youth violence and discuss how investing in programs for youth can pay dividends -- and keep the peace -- as they reach their teens. Monday at 9.
