    I think the police do the minimal amount of work required to get through their shifts. I've seen police drive right past a problem area while gang activity & drug sales are happening, and not even look their way. Why? Because no one called about it. And if the residents don't care (evident by lack of complaints), then why would the police do extra to improve someone else's community?

    Many North side communities are proactive & call the police for even the most minor looking behaviors. They tell the police that what's going on is unacceptable and demand change. They raise hell! The cops kick into gear & police those areas.

    We need a much larger number of residents to open their mouths and stop being quiet about the problems. The drug dealers count on complacency to operate.

  • Amen, Keith. Our district police have said that more than once in CAPS meetings. "Calls for service. That's what counts". No one seems to believe them. Even when there's a shooting, no one calls.
