Mayfair Neighbors Talk About Crime Concerns

SAVANNAH, GA -

Crime was on the minds of neighbors in Savannah's Mayfair subdivision Wednesday night.  They gathered at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Savannah's Southside to talk about what they can do better to protect themselves and their property.   

Pam Cullum, with the Mayfair Neighborhood Association, says that Mayfair is an established neighborhood that unfortunately has seen more crime recently.  "A community is only as strong as the people, so the option of sitting back and doing nothing and being silent was not an option.  So basically the meeting was to motivate and work with law enforcement and realize that in order for them to help us we've got to call them," Cullum told WSAV-TV. 

Also on the hand for the meeting was Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson, several city and council representatives, and Captain John Best—the new precinct captain for that part of Savannah.  "There was a lot of interaction between the residents and police and a lot of good questions.  They realize that they want to work with us and we want to work with them and I think it raised awareness about crime that has happened in their neighborhood," said Best. 

Mayor Edna Jackson told neighbors that she is working with Police Chief Willie Lovett to reorganize patrols that the area has more visible police coverage.
