SUNSET PARK - The new Safe Stop program launched today for residents who feel unsafe while walking Brooklyn streets.

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes says Safe Stop provides a safe place for residents to go and access help or information if they are feeling unsafe.

The launch comes just one month after an 8-year-old Brooklyn boy was kidnapped and murdered when he stopped his accused killer for directions.

Officials say 77 businesses have already signed up to be a part of the program. They say residents can identify a Safe Stop business by looking for a sticker on the storefront.
