9/22/2017 - Greensburg Redevelopment Commission Meeting -
Police Chief Bridges requested funding for bicycles and a UTV for patrols of the walking trails. He updated the Commission that a 45% increase in crime has occurred in the city of Greensburg from 2016 to 2017, with a 97% increase in narcotic arrests. He has increased the number of traffic patrols, and crashes are down 16% from 2016. The police chief stated he had officers interested in doing bicycle patrols of the walking trails for increased security, and between 5 and 8 narcotic arrests have been made in the Rebekah Park area this year. The Commission decided to consult other avenues to establish the appropriate agency to fund the patrol bicycles and the UTV, and to review the request at the next meeting on October 19, 2017.
