Davenport, IA – According to the city officials, the ultimate goal is to reduce violent crime in the city after the city reached an all-time high of gunfire incidents and non-fatal shootings in 2020.
The city leaders announced the creation of a Violent Crime Community Task Force, which includes city and police leaders, Davenport Schools, and other local groups working to identify community-based solutions to violence.
Gov. Reynolds said it was a really good meeting.
“Whether it’s technology, whether it’s more troopers on the ground, there’s a lot of different things that we’re working on.
That we can actually just help supplement their team to address some of the uptick that they’re seeing.
It’s a great partnership, it’s a great collaboration, and I will look forward to hopefully seeing some good results from it.”
