Everson said the city needs more police patrols in troubled neighborhoods
The areas of Chillicothe that are being targeted by drug dealers, are in need of more law enforcement attention, according the the mayor. Jack Everson says the police have done a great job in busting numerous drug houses, but more needs to be done.
He said that more police patrols are needed in areas such as Sherman Park and Lincoln Park, where criminal elements are growing in intensity.
He also stated that the city has to take a tough stance and need a squad of police officers and staff that are motivated and ready to go.
Everson said the city is fighting a judicial system that is not cooperating in that regard.
