Protecting Local Businesses From Crime

Recent criminal activity in one of the Capitol City's neighborhoods has the community coming together.
Police, city council and business owners from the southwest side of Lansing met Monday to discuss how to deter crime in their area this summer.
One idea discussed is to establish a neighborhood watch for businesses in that community.
"That's why we're getting together now so we can address the issues," says Joe McDonald of Mayor Virg Bernero's office. "Because usually in the summer you do experience an uptick in crime, and so by being proactive, getting some of the businesses together to form a neighborhood watch is gonna be one of the solutions to this issue."
McDonald also tells News 10 if problems persist in that area, they may have to consider putting up another surveillance camera.
