Upcoming articles to explore CY crime issues

Do you ever get the feeling that sometimes our neighborhood is on “blast” for unwarranted reasons? Whether it’s some fellow residents of Cooper-Young, local news, or surrounding neighborhoods, these unwarranted words, comments, post, or even “stories” hurt the image of our neighborhood. Sure, we have all types of crime in our neighborhood, but is it really as bad as some make it out to be?

Which brings me to my next question. What can be done about it? And here is where I would like to step in and provide some help. So, let me lay out some groundwork for you all to show how we can address these issues. Through a six-part series, I plan on addressing criminal terminology, statistics, the difference between a Robbery/Theft/Burglary, and a comparison of neighborhoods similar to that of Cooper-Young. Hopefully, this will be an educational experience for us all and that you learn something along the way. — John Condon
