The Greenville Police Department is proud of the difference their officers are making on the streets.
Back in 2004, the department created a Problem Solving Team, to increase communication between residents and police.
And so far it seems to be making a difference in reducing drug activity, trespassing and loitering. The team worked in the Cherry View, and Tobacco Road neighborhoods for about a year, and the team says they are seeing improvements. Now the group is beginning work in the glen Arthur neighborhood near ECU.
A recent review of calls for service in the area has shown a decrease in burglaries, damage to property, gunshot related complaints, and controlled substance violations.##
