I am a resident of the 3900 hundred block of Lake Park Avenue and we constantly have police sitting out here 24 hours and we have no criminal activity in this area. Instead they should be in neighborhoods that need their help and protecting people in high crime areas or patroling these schools instead of sit around here all day.
