How to Cut Crime on the Eastside?

A meeting between district two community leaders, their councilman, and the city’s police chief talking about ways to help keep streets, homes, and neighborhoods safe and livable.

“Well, this originally started, as you know, there was a spike in some violent offenses,” SAPD Chief William McManus said.

The focus now is to enhance community policing.

“What’s key here is resolving the issues at the root,” McManus said. “If we keep responding and responding and responding, all we’re doing really is cutting the top of it and it continues to fester, so we want to resolve the issues at their fundamental root cause.”

“So we want the community to tell us what are the problems and where are the problem areas,” District Two Councilman Alan Warrick told KTSA. “Once we have those problems compiled in clear lists, then we start working on sustainable solutions.”

He said it’s about getting to the root of the problems.
