"All Hands On Deck" Targeting High Crime Areas In Greenville

Police officers, detectives and administrators built up a huge police presence Wednesday in high crime areas of Greenville.

It was called operation "All Hands On Deck," and the Greenville Police Department said it was designed to increase police presence where the most crime calls come from. Authorities say police talked with people who live in those areas about the importance of a positive relationship with the police department.

Nearly 60 extra officers were on the streets from 1 Wednesday afternoon until ten at night. Police say the program is similar to one started in high crime areas of Washington DC.
