A new report out this week says Richmond's Office of Neighborhood Safety is helping to reduce violent crimes in the city. The program seeks out the city's most vulnerable members using data mining to offer mentoring and a paid fellowship. Now, Richmond is seeing an uptick in crime so far in 2015. We discuss what's working and ask why crime may be rising in recent months.

Guests:

Angie Wolf, director of justice strategies at the National Council on Crime and Delinquency and leader of the Richmond study

DeVone Boggan, director of Richmond's Office of Neighborhood Safety
