SAVANNAH, Georgia — A group of Savannah-area prosecutors, police, elected officials and community leaders is planning a trip to New York as part of an effort to combat crime in the Georgia city.

The Savannah Morning News reports ( that they plan in mid-July to meet with a criminal justice expert in New York and discuss a program aimed at stopping violent crime.

District Attorney Meg Heap said David Kennedy, director of the National Network for Safe Communities, will talk to the group about his state-based "Operation Ceasefire: The Boston gun project." The group will meet at the John Jay College for Criminal Justice in New York.

The effort is part of Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson's five-step solution to reduce crime, which she made a cornerstone of her state-of-the-city address in February.
