Tacoma sets an ambitious goal of cutting crime in half, News Tribune (Tacoma), April 21, 2008.
Tacoma City Manager Eric Anderson wants to reduce crime in the city by 50 percent in 14 months. Approximately 250 city employees from a cross-section of departments met for two days this week at Tacoma’s convention center to discuss how the city might reach the target, a goal that surprised some City Council members for its sheer ambition.
The same group is charged with developing a plan to clean up the city, an equally lofty aim that’s not as easily measured as the crime rate.
Big plans for the City of Destiny!
