SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Savannah precinct officers are using a two pronged approach in an effort to
kick the new year off with fewer crimes.
two facets are called "Total Focus," which protects people by having
more officers on the streets. The second facet is called Operation SEE, which
stands for saturate, educate, and enforce, and the goal is to build
relationships with the people in the community.
"Most of the residents of these neighborhoods are honest, hard working
people who find themselves weary of criminals around them," says Downtown
Precinct Commander Mike Wilkins in a news release. "We need their help in
curtailing crime in these areas and they need to see us in situations other
than crime scenes to feel comfortable enough to share information with us."
There has been an almost annual decline in crime in the areas where
these initiatives took place and they want to keep that trend going.
