Try these steps:
1. Suspend wasting money for a nice new court house and hire new cops.
2. Have police patrol areas other than Chesapeake Ave. and Fox Hill.
3. Do not re-elect anyone currently serving on city council and mayor.

Arm all city council members, and have them patrol Pembroke and Victoria Blvds!

Nothing is going to change until the citizens who reside in these communities are ready to speak to the police about what they know. It seems like they don't like the police when they patrol the area and accuse them of being overzealous and then they don't like the police when a murder happens and there was no cop standing on the precise corner at the precise moment the bullet came out of the gun. The only people who can change communities are the people who reside there. It's time to take back your streets. Know where your kids are; know who their friends are and know whether or not they own weapons.

Not 100% true. I called the police about gunshots in the neighborhood, and police dispatch response was "Sir they do that all the time".
Our neighborhood is right near Shell road where a lot of shootings happen, and you might see a cop once a month. Drive down Chesapeake ave, and cops are sitting their running radar. Same with area near space museum.

Police, Fire & rescue, when I lived in Hampton, were very slow in response. Once the 911 operator asks you 50 questions and repeats everthing you say, 10 minutes have gone by. I could have driven to City Hall and yelled up at the top where the 911 dispatchers sit.
Once the police get a call, if it's not a shooting it takes all resources another 15 minutes to get from the empty parking lot or
7-11.
Sometimes they don't come at all if you say at 1 am a load of teens to mid 2-s are outside in the street. 10-4

. . . while the dispatcher is asking you those '50 questions', she has already dispatched someone to you.

Not really. I use to call 911 when I lived in Hampton because cars were weekly getting keyed. The dispatcher always sounded the same. Times I thought only 1 woman sat on top city hall with a magazine and rotary phone. Response is very slow if at all-------------

That's because the city is broke. Answering a call to a real crime cost money. Police have to actually work. Radar is like shooting fish in a barrel. Sundays is radar day in NN as well.
