A few weeks after Sacramento Police announced that they had made 20 arrests in crimes targeting Asians in South Sacramento, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department announced that they had made 15 arrests.
According to the Sheriff's Department, there has been a 77 percent decrease in these robberies in their areas alone. That's in addition to Sac Police saying there has been a 43 percent drop.
Sergeant Tony Turnbull of the Sheriff's department attributes this drop in robberies to law enforcement, media, and most importantly, the community spreading awareness and working together with various agencies.
Despite this news, many people in the community are demanding more. They want mug shots, names, and more information on the suspects to feel safer.
