Last Elkhart crime reduction meeting held

Posted:

Osolo Township hosted Elkhart County's last crime reduction meeting Saturday.Turn-out between the ten townships has varied from just a few folks to ten or twenty people.

Saturday about fifteen concerned citizens came out to call attention to their neighborhood problems.

Patrolman Evan Witt said it's good to meet with people face to face.

Witt said, "Yeah I think I've gained relationships with some of the people that attended I can speak with personally."

Sheriff Brad Rogers of Elkhart County explained that the meetings were intended to be a proactive way to expand the relationship between officers and the public.

Rogers said, "You see we don't want a police state, we don't want officers on every corner so in a free society we want the public to help us who they've empowered us anyway to enforce laws."

But the department especially wants to rally awareness through technology. You can find links to their Facebook and website here.
