The Savannah City Council is getting an update during Thursday's workshop on where the city stands for a building a possible new arena and tourism.

Mayor Edna Jackson is addressing a recent spike in crimes and talking about her support for the police department.

"Last night, there was another incident that happened in the Fernwick area. Our police department members are working very diligently to try and cover as much as they can. I agree, we must give them the opportunity to do the policing. I feel, we had a talk with the chief, I feel that he's on top of things," Jackson said.

The City Council is meeting at 2 p.m.

On Friday, the Chatham County Commission is scheduled to talk at 9:30 p.m. to Police Chief Willie Lovett at their 9:30 a.m. meeting.
