Savannah-Chatham Metro Police have added a new member to its End Gun Violence: Step Forward team.
Frederic Green is the program's new outreach coordinator.
He will be a conduit between gang members and troubled teens, and the agencies that can help them.
Green is a Savannah native and he has degrees in Social Work and Religion.
He says he can relate to the troubled teens, because he was previously involved with drugs and served five years in prison before turning his life around.
The city has also named the Salvation Army as the lead agency to provide job training, temporary housing and more.
