If you look at the starnews crime map. The majority of crimes are in downtown. WPD already has cameras everywhere, they patrol. Downtown has provided places where people can get cabs for the drunks. Here is the solution for reducing downtown crime. Reduce the number of bars. There are far too many bars downtown I believe 62-63 places licensed to sell alcohol. When a bar closes down a alot of them dont allow another bar to open in it's spot but rather allow only a shop or resturant to be opened. This will slowly get rid of the bars. And for the bars that stay open. They need to be closed by midnight with last call at 10:30pm. If people still feel the need to party until the break fo dawn they can do so at their own home. Reducing the bars will bring better public opinion about downtown.
