Pastors and members of 25 churches throughout Cincinnati plan to hold the first of seven prayer walks against violence on Saturday.
The walks will be held simultaneously in about 15 different communities throughout Cincinnati and will last up to one hour.
Cincinnati police Officer Louis Arnold is helping organize the effort and says when police or community members step up their presence in a neighborhood, crime often moves away.
In just one Cincinnati neighborhood so far this year — Winton Terrace — Arnold says there have been 15 shootings, three of them fatal.
