Rising Crime Results in Rising Police Presence
Pat Kelley, of the Ridgeway Neighborhood Association, says it's the wrong way to bring about a better neighborhood.
"The only thing that works is community policing, and right now we have command and control policing. I think being more agressive is not going to help," explained Kelly.
Kelley says the city should also look at bringing stronger youth programs and activities to the Garth neighborhoods. Other neighbors said they're just happy somebody is taking action to clean up the streets.
