AG Miyares continues campaign against gun violence

Attorney General Jason Miyares continues his efforts in Operation Ceasefire with the start of a digital media campaign.

The campaign will utilize YouTube and social media to attempt to reach young people who may be considering gang or criminal activity.

Miyares released a trailer yesterday following the announcement of the highly anticipated release of Grand Theft Auto VI.

In the teaser, he mentions that violent crime is not a game and encourages young people to say something if they see something.

Operation Ceasefire began in October of 2022 as an effort to address gun and gang violence through prosecution and prevention, as well as promoting intervention strategies and working with local communities to reduce violent gun and gang related crimes.

A link to the teaser is available here.
