One of the country's top crime experts is coming to town. The City of Savannah is joining forces with Chatham County, local crime-fighting groups and US Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA Dist. 1) for a public forum with retired Charleston, South Carolina, police chief Reuben Greenberg Monday night at the Savannah Civic Center.
Local leaders say we can learn a lot from his innovative crime-fighting methods. "Chief Greenberg did a lot of good things in Charleston," said Rep. Kingston. "Maybe some of those things can apply to us. Maybe we've already done some of them, but getting new ideas from out of town never hurts."
"Nationally, Chief Greenberg is considered an expert on reducing crime, and that's what we want to do in Savannah," said Mayor Otis Johnson. "That's our goal, so we have to listen to people who have a successful track record."
The forum is Monday night from 5pm to pm in the civic center ballroom and it's open to the public.
