Summer Cease Fire

Salisbury Police Department's Ice Cream Truck

During the first full week of summer 2019, the Salisbury Police Department is partnering with the Salisbury-Rowan Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to launch “Summer Cease Fire” a local initiative to encourage Salisbury youth, and in some cases adults, to stop gun-related assault during summer 2019.

The Salisbury Summer Cease Fire initiative is patterned after the Cure Violence model of policing which identifies violence as a public health issue and develops data-driven strategies to combat the issue.

The NAACP has identified individuals in the community who will serve as de-escalators in the midst of potentially violent situations between youth and related groups. For more information regarding Summer Cease Fire, contact Marcus L. Fairley at
