The conclusion of Birmingham’s Peace in the Park

Final Peace in the Park event Friday night

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The final Peace in the Park was held in Birmingham Friday night.

Police chief Patrick Smith said previously, that crime in Birmingham increased by about 42%, between June and September.

Peace in the Park was an effort to combat that trend. Its aim was to give young people and others in the community an activity to promote non-violence during times which have traditionally been high crime hours.
