Salinas police officers Jeffrey Lofton and Richard Lopez talk with Charlie, a neighborhood resident. The officers make a point of knowing who is in their area and making themselves available for help. The Community Alliance for Safety and Peace, of which they are an active part, is an ambitious program that aims to steer youth away from gang violence and toward solutions offered by more than 30 local organizations offering alternatives.
