Public must assist police to help reduce crime, says Warren safety-service director

Published: Fri, May 4, 2012 @ 5:39 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Observations and reports from alert and concerned citizens are necessary for police to maximize their effectiveness, the supervisor of Warren’s municipal emergency services told a crime prevention task force.

“A police force can only be as good as the information it has,” Enzo Cantalamessa, Warren’s safety-service director, said Friday at Youngstown’s City Hall.

“Community involvement goes a long, long way in helping law enforcement do its job,” Cantalamessa told the Mahoning Valley Task Force on Crime and Violence.

Community organizations and neighborhood associations give police vital information about suspicious activity “to ideally stop crime before it happens,” he said.

Instead of hating the Police all the time, start hating the criminals that disgrace the human race.

Do you really think I would testify against someone who shot a person 23 times and was pleaded to involuntary manslaughter and given six years? Justice in this area is a joke. http://www.vindy.com/news/2012/may/04...

...and if that individual would have been given the death penalty, everyone would have screamed unfair justice and he is such a good boy, he would never have done that. They got the wrong boy.

Liberal judicial policies have developed from voter preferences in The Valley. Keep voting them in and keep complaining. Did not vote at all?...you have no right to complain.

Some in The Valley hid from the Census takers, or did not turn in their survey sheets. Why are they hiding? Some youngsters quit going to school. They claim they don't need it, but then they complain that they cannot find a job. They can't even fill out an employment application properly. Guess where that application goes. Some of the same people are not registered to vote, but yet, when it comes to justice time, they are the first to complain.

So, where do we start? What should we do?

It starts at the home and it starts in the soul.

Each of us has God given Free Will. What we do with it and how our lives are shaped is our own doing. It doesn't happen overnight...it takes years to develop, so you have to start early or you pay the price later. We are all now paying that price.

Wouldn't you just love to go back and start over? Some of us have. Go to church and ask Him. It's not too late.

Our justice system works best only when the people who know about or witnessed the criminal conduct come forward, either by giving statements or testifying when the need arises. Absent that citizen cooperation our justice system cannot work.

Crime only exist in a society to the degree that it (crime) will be tolerated. The more criminal conduct we tolerate the more criminal conduct we have.

Exactly ytownnative. one man kill 3 people and get six years, another shoot a man 23 times and only get six years. It is the same people terrorrizing this place and the judge and prosecutor cant do there job. I would not put my life in the hands of this system either.
