Montgomery Police Dept. Announces "Operation Domino"
The city of Montgomery is kicking off a new strategy to curb crime. They're starting a new initiative called "Operation Domino" -- it's far from just a game -- the Montgomery Police department hopes this new approach to fight crime will make the city a safer place.
The Montgomery Police department announced its partnership with other organizations throughout the county to start "Operation Domino" -- a two-fold initiative that involves crime fighting and educating children.
The police department says they've been studying where crime is taking place and will focus more patrols and undercover policing in high risk areas.
Police say you won't see the results immediately of "Operation Domino." It would be about 2 or 3 years before you see the effects. But they say get ready -- because if you have a warrant, a misdemeanor, and live in a high risk crime area. Police will be apprehending you very soon.
Police say their clearance rate on crimes is 80 percent. This time last year they were at a 90 percent clearance rate.
