CHICAGO (AP) - The city of Chicago has released a report with 28 recommendations to address the city’s youth violence problem.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Mayor’s Commission for a Safe Chicago released the report on Tuesday. The recommendations include adding eight “peace rooms” in Chicago Public schools for conflict resolution and connecting families with counseling.

This is the commission’s first report. It was written after three forums held over the summer attended by government representatives, faith groups and community organizations. The commission also sought out opinions from about 200 young people in more than a dozen Chicago communities.
