The new Executive Director of the George Street Association wants to see police return to a community-based policing strategy in the downtown.
Jonathan Galgay wants a meeting with the RNC to talk about a new approach to policing that would help prevent crime.
The street has been a hub of violent activity in recent years, including multiple stabbings and sexual assaults.
Galgay wants to see more police in the area more often, not just after an incident happens.
He remembers when police would walk the beat downtown during all hours of the day and would stop in and chat with store owners.
Galgay says a return to community-based policing downtown would make people feel safer.
