Griffith: Increased Police Patrol Will Impact High Property Crime [INTERVIEW]
On Friday's Chad Hasty Show, Lubbock City Councilman Jeff Griffith joined Chad in the KFYO studio to talk about many hot topics facing the city.
Griffith and Hasty discussed progress on Citizen's Tower, the budget status, parking, projected move in dates, and what the time line will look like for the transition to the new property.
Also in the discussion was the high property crime rate in the city of Lubbock and how the new police substations are expected to affect those numbers, as well as strategies for dealing with homelessness, and more.
While talking about property crime, Griffith said,
The number one thing that we're doing that I feel like is a major advancement is community policing. Part of that is the fact that we're not just building three substations, but we'll be putting more officers on patrol in those district, if you will. Chad, this will help tremendously for property crime. Yes, we have a property crime problem...I've said this before: Crime has no address, it's all over this city.
