Stepping Up The Crime Fight In Redding
Regardless of the actual crime numbers, there is a perception of a crime problem in downtown Redding.
Business owners have banded together as Redding Merchants Crime Watch, and the council and mayor are floating proposals to beef up law enforcement.
Right smack in the middle is Police Chief Rob Paoletti, who plans a town hall meeting Wednesday at 6 PM (at Sequoia Middle School) to release crime stats and take input.
The chief and the merchants expect a big turnout; Ed Rullman of the merchants group joins us.
