A month after 8-year-old Lieby Kletzy was murdered and 20 years after the Crown Heights riots, Brooklyn, NY has stepped up to create safe havens for kids and keep peace in the community between Hasidic Jews and African Americans.  This week, Crime Prevention Specialist Susan Bartelstone talks with Brooklyn DA Joe Hynes about the extraordinary efforts the borough has taken to protect its citizens — steps other communities can learn from!

Then Susan speaks with Pastor Joe D’Agostino, former drug abuser, dealer and organized crime Consigliere, about how he turned his life around and has been operating a prison ministry that counts David Berkowitz, the infamous Son of Sam, among its numbers. He’s got a proposal for a faith-based program to help teens in trouble that has been working wonders with hundreds of kids in the borough of Queens, NY … and can be done everywhere.

Author Wayne Farquar, 28-year veteran police officer in San Jose, CA, also stops by to take us on a realistic and gritty tour of the underbelly of police and detective work from his first crime thriller Blood Over the Badge which has already been optioned for a TV series.  You can so tell in his authentic writing that this  author is a veteran cop and I can’t wait to speak with him!
