Despite Shooting Spike, Arrests Follow; Mayor Deems City Safest
Noting that a recent COPS grant brings the Huntington Police Department to 111 members --- the highest level since the mid 1980s , the Mayor explained within the city limits is the "safest place," rather than locations that are a ten or fifteen minute call away.
He stressed that the city's own police force is complimented by the Cabell County Sheriff's Department, the WV State Police and federal marshals.
Council member Joyce Clark clarified , too, that neither the shooting victims and the shooter charged in the recent spree near Northcott Court were "residents of public housing," which consist "primarily of the elderly and families."
