Rocky Mount Council: Too Much Crime Is Being Reported

By  | 

Some members of the Rocky Mount city council are finding some problems with the police departments e-policing system.

City council members feel the e-policing system is opening the door to negative images about the city. The email alert system gives the public information about certain arrests made, shootings and other crimes handled by the police department.

City councilman Andre Knight says, "You hear a lot of feed back from citizens who are tired of seeing the negative stories on the TV and in the newspaper."

Knight says a new campaign which will highlight some of the bright spots of Rocky Mount is underway.
