More than 100 people turned out for a community meeting on crime in Manchester Thursday evening.
Many expressed frustration over the rise in crime and pressed police for answers on how they’re working to make the city safer.
Longtime resident Doris Ploss says she’s never seen her city like this.
“Manchester’s changed an awful lot, with all the crime and the drugs. We didn’t have that. It’s very bad.”
She lives on the west side and, like many over the summer, was a victim of burglary.
