WLOX Editorial: Police need your help

Some people in Moss Point say it is time for a change. They are fed up with violence. Some concerned citizens recently took to the streets to demonstrate their dedication to curbing violence in their city and the nation. They pledge they will help the police stop crime by forming Neighborhood Watch programs.

We agree with this group in Moss Point. The police cannot be everywhere all the time. They need the eyes and ears of the good people to stand up against the criminal element. The bad guys can often hide from the limited number of police officers, but a community of right minded citizens leads to deterrence and capture of would be criminals.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
