You Tell Us: Do Neighborhoods Receive Equal Police Protection?
Patch wants to know whether readers feel neighborhoods are treated equally by the police.
Following the robbery of two women near the Roland Park Shopping Center last week the police responded by placing an officer and a car at the shopping center for large portions of the day. After a spate of burglaries in Guilford the Northern District assigned two foot patrol officers to that neighborhood in the fall.
But after a murder on Halloween night at the Yau Bros. Chinese Carryout in the 2900 block of Greenmount Avenue, some merchants bitterly complained about a lack of police presence enabling crimes like that to happen.
So Patch wants to know what our readers think.
