The problem downtown doesn't

The problem downtown doesn't lie with the lighting.....it lies with the lack of a sufficient amount of police presence in heavily populated areas. Its public record people, you should ask.....how many cops do you think are assigned to the "Downtown" district at any one time??? Its about ONE! 1. Uno. That's right, ONE. So you tell me how one cop is going to police all of the areas that the downtown encompasses. Yeah sure on the weekends and in the summer and on holidays there are more cops there, for instance the mounted police officers. And WPD still has M.U.D. or Maximum Uniform Deployment. But those officers concentrate on Front and Market Streets where the bar patrons are. The city council needs to better fund the police department and get them more officers. Bottom line.
