PROJECT SUMMARY FOR 95-DM-BX-0161
In 1992, the City of Blytheville Police Department implemented a patrol program in a high-crime community. The police department has placed heavy emphasis on forming neighborhood watch groups. Plans have been made to coordinate anti-drug operations with agents of the Mississippi County Sheriff's Department and the Second Judicial District Drug Task Force. Because the number of locations identified as high crime areas is too large for the current complement of patrol teams to address, the Blytheville Police Department will use the new officers to support patrols of these high-crime areas. Additional police presence in other high-crime neighborhoods could reduce the number of calls for service and open view drug transactions, and increase community security. Veteran officers will be selected to participate in this program. 2 additional officers will be hired under this project.
