This evening I also attended the North Park – Love Field crime watch meeting. Concerned neighbors started the crime watch earlier this year to address the serious crime problems they’re having in the area, including drug houses, burglaries, and prostitution.
Tonight neighbors pointed out to city officials that they want a “zero tolerance” policy for code violators. Recognizing that code violations and crime go hand in hand, neighbors want to crack down on offenders and clean up the community.
Time and time again, crime watch programs prove that they make a real difference in reducing crime and getting neighborhoods back on track. I applaud NPLF’s efforts to make the neighborhood safer.
