Today, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. brought his "Peace in our Streets" initiative to the James Monroe Houses in the Soundview section of the Bronx.

Borough President Diaz, along with Assembly Member Marcos Crespo, City Council Member Fernando Cabrera and dozens of volunteers went door to door in each building of the complex, handing out information on the NYPD's 866-GUN-STOP program.

The program offers cash rewards to individuals who anonymously report illegal gun activity.
