Citizens, Police Join Forces To Combat Crime

Greenville citizens and police will come together to discuss a crime rate plaguing one community.

Residents are concerned about the recent spike in crime on Kristen Dr., which used to be Tobacco Rd. Officials will hold a meeting Tuesday night to discuss initiatives to combat the crime. The meeting is scheduled to take place at Koinonia Christian Center at 7 p.m.

According to the chairperson of the Police Community Relations Committee, crime rates have decreased since police have increased patrols in the neighborhood.

    Look around ALL of Greenville is plauged by crime when are we gonna start doing something about that! It's ok when it does not directly affect you or a loved one. We just sit back and say "oh that's terrible". Greenville is a scary place to live. Honestly I am on guard no matter where I am in Greenville. Scary town. I came here for school BIG mistake cant wait to get out of here.

    Shoot the perpitrators and crime will stop. When we stop babying criminals maybe they will stop committing crimes. Sounds harsh but it is what's needed.

    Some of these "concerned" citizens are the same ones that condone and take advantage of policies by the Federal government that financially reward and thereby ecourange single women to have children with no father around to help raise and discipline them. By the time some of these kids are teenagers they are roaming the streets like feral animals. Get serious -- cut out welfare and food stamps to anyone other than the elderly and the disabled and in just one decade you'll begin to see a drastic reduction in crime.

      One day, the problem you described will be a "black mark" on the human race. One that will degrade our planet like no other.

    Make sure the landlords and owners that care more about money than whom they rent to are there, too. If illegal activity happens at certain units more than others, charge them a hefty fine and once they grow tired of paying those fines, they will find better tenants or keep better company.

    What they need is "a little less talk, marching, meeting and a lot more action"
