Shonna Majors, the city’s community violence reduction director, has resigned from her role, the Office of Public Health and Safety confirmed Monday.
Majors’ position was created by Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett in 2018, as part of the city’s first-ever community violence reduction team. Her last day will be Friday.
Hogsett said in a statement that Majors played a critical role in the city’s public safety, as she introduced national practices and grassroots violence reduction and prevention efforts.
“We are grateful for her dedicated service, which has allowed us to build a strong foundation for significant investments over the next three years,” Hogsett said in the statement.
An OPHS spokesperson said that for now, Majors’ job responsibilities will be taken on by existing staff members.
