Many residents support city's zero-tolerance policy



Published: Thu, July 19, 2007 @ 9:21 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Police stopped Thomas Spivey of Poland twice during the first phase of the city’s zero-tolerance crime prevention program.

Not only didn’t Spivey have a problem with being pulled over two times in February, he said he was pleased because it meant officers were working to make Youngstown safer.

“When you’re not doing anything wrong, you don’t mind,” he said. “I’m glad to see the police presence. This [zero-tolerance policy] will slow crime down. Police presence will discourage people from committing crimes.”

Spivey and others will see more officers from various law enforcement agencies patrolling city streets over the next four weeks. Phase II of city’s Special Interdiction Patrols program began today.
