BROWNSVILLE - Community leaders took a walking tour of anti-crime initiatives in Brownsville on Tuesday.

Program organizer Debbie Myers showed District Attorney Charles Hynes and others the area along St. Mark's Avenue where she says she would like to build a vocational training center.

Officials are also hoping that Brownsville's "Back On Track" program, which helps young people stay out of trouble, will provide growth for the area. Hynes said the goal is to make Brownsville one of the city's safest areas.
