Neighbors Teaming Up with Dayton Police to Fight Crime
DAYTON -- Cleaning up the streets of Dayton. It's something Dayton Police do every single day, but now they're focusing their efforts.
Dayton Police officers have arrested 30 people and thrown them in the Montgomery County Jail just this passed month.
It's all thanks to the Community Problem Response Team.
All of the arrests came from one location on North Smithville Road.
"It's just a high traffic neighborhood, especially the apartments," said Nicholas Carpenter.
People have been coming and going from the Terrace View Apartments for a while now according to neighbors.
"A lot of people walking by, a lot of strangers you know, a lot of people you don't see when you're used to a neighborhood. You pretty much know everybody, and it's a lot of people you don't know," said Carpenter.
According to the police reports, officers describe the apartment complex as a drive thru for drugs.
"They're pulling in there, they're in there for 2, 3, 4, 5 minutes and leaving," said Sgt. Matter Beavers, Dayton Police Department.
Dayton Police have been patrolling this area along North Smithville for the past month, and they've already made 30 arrests.
"Various drugs, not all of them were drug arrests, a lot of them were warrant arrests but a lot of them were heroin, crack cocaine and prescription medicine," said Sgt. Beavers.
Just Monday night officers arrested three people all for having drugs.
And dash cam video shows police arresting this woman for having heroin and it's not her first time.
According to the police report, officers arrested the same woman, at the same apartment building just two weeks ago.
"After the first five or ten or whatever you'd think that everybody else would say this is dumb, why don't we just cut it out," said Carpenter.
That's what police are hoping for.
But in the mean time, they plan to continue their crackdown, and neighbors are grateful.
"Less crime means, less bad stuff going on honestly," said Carpenter, "You don't want to have kids out here doing stuff and if there's guns and violence and drugs on the streets, you don't want them getting hurt or in trouble."
Dayton Police say they visit each neighborhood's association meeting and that's where they get their tips from the community.
If you want to let them know about a certain problem location, or illegal activity in your neighborhood, just give them a call 333-COPS.
