Charleston police met with some West Side residents to discuss criminal activity Thursday evening.
It was part of a town hall meeting at Stonewall Jackson Middle School.
Police officers said they are focusing on violent and drug-related crimes.
They said neighbors can help them by keeping a watchful eye on and taking ownership of their own neighborhoods.
"There are so many people that love the West Side,” Capt. Kim Mitchell, of Charleston police, said. “They live here. They work here and, if there’s issues going on, we need to help address them."
The city of Charleston is conducting a survey to get a better idea of what West Side neighbors want. It is available online here.
