East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III and retired High Point, N.C. Police Chief Jim Fealy will address the Press Club at noon Monday, June 25.
Moore and Fealy will discuss the Baton Rouge Area Violence Elimination Project, a new violent crime intervention plan aimed at violent offenders as well as drug offenders in the city’s 70805 ZIP code. The plan is modeled after a highly regarded strategy for curbing violence that has worked in cities across the country, including High Point.
Press Club meets on Mondays at the De La Ronde Hall in downtown Baton Rouge at 320 Third St. Lunch, which is served at 11:30 a.m., is $12 for members and $15 for nonmembers.
The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and members of the news media are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
