Hendricks Announces Safer City Plan

One of the candidates for Hopkinsville Mayor is announcing his plans to make the city a safer place for residents to live. In a post on his campaign website Monday, Carter Hendricks announced his “Safe and Happy Hoptown” plan. Hendricks notes that he takes the role of public safety in the community seriously and recognizes the need for a safe community where people feel happy and safe.

As a part of his plan, Hendricks says he would commit to developing trusting and mutually respectful relationships with the Police and Fire Chiefs, work to align regional law enforcement resources and stakeholders to cut down on criminal activity, crack down on criminal activity through expanding community policing models and development of a special task force to focus on violent crimes, and develop stronger community trust through inner-city efforts, neighborhood associations, and community outreach.

Hendricks says with the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri in mind, building relationships between the community and police, having highly trained and professional police, and having a response plan in place would be critical if Hopkinsville ever had to face a similar situation.
