Police Chief: Department Will be More Proactive
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Cincinnati's police chief says his department will do a better job of being proactive rather than reactive to crime.
Drug activity seemed to get the most attention at a town hall meeting Wednesday night in district three. It's the first of a series of meetings that will be held in each of the five police districts.
District three gets the most calls for service.
People voiced their concerns about police response time and drug activity in front of their homes.
"It doesn't stop, I live on a grade they can see police coming and get away. It's never ending. I want it to stop."
"Police response is not happening, you call and they don't show up too busy."
"We are challenging ourselves to do a better job, even though less officers, challenging to do better and not let neighbors be hostage to open air drug trafficking."
All the meetings are from 6:30 to 8p.m. The next one is Thursday night at River of Life Church in Over-the-Rhine.
