Poole Recognized For Work With Chattanooga Violence Reduction Initative

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher D. Poole received the National Association of Former U.S. Attorneys Exceptional Service Award for his work with the Chattanooga Violence Reduction Act.  U.S. Attorney William C. Killian presented the award plaque, on behalf of the National Association of Former U.S. Attorneys, to Assistant U.S. Attorney Poole at an office ceremony on Thursday.

A letter from the NAFUSA which accompanied the plaque stated, “This award is given in recognition of the exemplary service provided by your Assistant to the United States Attorneys’ Office, the Department of Justice and to the citizens of the United States of America.  As former United States Attorneys, we can recognize a great Assistant United States Attorney.”  

U.S. Attorney Killian congratulated Assistant U.S. Attorney Poole on the award and stated, “The Eastern District of Tennessee is fortunate to have many quality federal prosecutors.  I am proud that Assistant U.S. Attorney Poole was recognized for his exceptional work with this important initiative with the city of Chattanooga.” 

The Chattanooga Violence Reduction Initiative was initiated by the city of Chattanooga in 2013.  The program aims to reduce violent crime through a multistep approach. It includes identifying a targeted focus, research and analyses of crime patterns, direct communication with violent offenders, and arrests of and sustained follow-through with individuals caught in a dynamic that pits different groups against one another in a retaliatory cycle.  The initiative is based on similar models used in High Point, N.C., Boston, Chicago and other cities.
