Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke shared details on Friday on the initial components of his comprehensive public safety plan, designed to reduce crime in Chattanooga. After a public safety forum in March and numerous meetings with community members on related issues, Mayor Berke and his team spent several weeks developing a strategy to reduce crime in the city.
“Public safety is my number one priority,” said Mayor Berke. “We must reduce crime and make our streets safer. And we will do that by implementing innovative initiatives and new approaches that have proven to be successful in other cities. We have looked at these tactics and incorporated them into the development of a comprehensive public safety plan, designed to make Chattanooga safer.”
Mayor Berke announced Friday that his team is ready to begin to implement the first three components of his plan and that he has asked Bobby Dodd to continue serving as Chief of Police. “I have had numerous conversations with Chief Dodd over the last several weeks,” said Mayor Berke. “I appreciate his dedication and experience in law enforcement and have asked him to continue to serve as Chief of Police.”
