CSPD Talks To, Hears From Citizens

While they'll be the first to admit crime in College Station is among the lowest in the state, the department still needs citizens' help to keep it that way.

"College Station is an affluent community," said Chief Michael Clancey. "It's a target-rich environment. It's our job, with you...you have to call us, please, if you see anything out of place."

Chief Michael Clancey and the department hosted a town hall meeting Wednesday evening to gather citizen input.

Among the topics was the department's push to hire more officers. Currently, the city is well-below the national average for officers per 1,000 citizens.

Also, Chief Clancey said the department is continuing to evaluate whether they should follow Bryan and institute a juvenile curfew. That law has been in place in Bryan since early this year.
