Out From Behind the Desks

Seen this morning at the News Channel 13 website:

Orlando Police announce a new crackdown on crime Monday. This time, the target is five areas known for trouble.

Operation: All Hands on Deck will focus on Parramore, Mercy Drive, Kirkman Road, Washington Shores, Rosemont, and a part of Semoran Boulevard near S.R. 408.

For the next 30 days, 88 officers who normally sit behind a desk or in an office will spend their days out patrolling the high crime zones.

On behalf of the citizens of Orlando, thank you! Godspeed and go get ’em!

    Hopefully they will decide to go beyond 30 days. This kind of policing probably needs to be a constant thing.

    Good point. I’m hoping that after 30 days we’ll see some kind of impact and it will illustrate the point that doing something more is more effective than not.

    Now if the police will start shooting these criminals while they are out there maybe it will have a lasting effect.
