The department is putting more officers in areas known for crime. It’s all part of Police Chief Sam Dotson’s plan to expand hot spot policing.

Officers are not being taken out of one neighborhood and put into another; rather they’re coming from specialized units such as SWAT and narcotics.

The result is 100 additional officers on the streets. One of the biggest targets is Washington Avenue downtown.

The officers’ mission is clear: to make their presence known.
