SALINAS, Calif.—Federal officials are trying to figure out how to funnel dollars to Salinas’ anti-gang efforts.

Representatives from four federal agencies spent Tuesday on an unpublicized tour of Salinas’s gang-plagued neighborhoods to see how best federal dollars could be used to help the violence-plagued city.

The officials included Annemarie Conroy of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Francisco; Phelan Wyrick, a senior policy advisor in the U.S. Department of Justice; and Juan Sepulveda, director of a White House initiative to improve Latino academic achievement.

Salinas, bucking a national trend, saw violent crime rise in 2009. It had a record 29 homicides, four higher than in 2008.
