Democrat-led City Struggles To Combat Rampant Theft And Drug Dealing

via ActionKid on Youtube

San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins highlighted that while there hasn’t been much improvement in keeping drug dealing suspects behind bars, there has been progress in detaining repeat thieves, leading to a decrease in retail crime.

This reduction is attributed to a combination of increased police presence in high-crime areas and strategic efforts by her office to advocate for detaining individuals who pose a threat to public safety.

Jenkins emphasized the importance of collaboration between law enforcement and retailers to address crime effectively. (Trending: LeBron James Shares Gun Advice For Americans)

“So, you had said to me in October that you were having a tough time keeping suspects behind bars. Has that improved?” NewsNation’s Dan Abrams asked.

Jenkins answered, “That hasn’t necessarily improved in drug dealing cases, but it has improved with respect to property crime.”

“Certainly, when we can demonstrate that someone is a prolific thief and somebody who’s working with an organized sort of theft crew to commit these acts.”

She continued, saying that some of the decrease in crime is due to “a larger police presence in areas where we know that certain types of crime [are] more prevalent and my office stepping into the courtroom and saying, certain people must be detained in order to protect public safety and ensuring that there are appropriate consequences for people who commit crime in San Francisco.”

“We’ve seen a significant decrease in retail theft.”

“But, again, it goes back to partnering with the police department as well as retailers to ensure that we are putting police where we know that they need to be to function as a deterrent, but also that when we receive those cases, that we are being thoughtful when we walk into court to say, certain people, yes, we can allow back out, but others must stay in for public safety reasons.”

“And so, when you keep certain people in that are prolific thieves, you see those numbers drop instantaneously.”
