More Patrols Sought

Editor, News-Register:

I support the safety forces of the Wheeling Police Department. I also support the safety of those who walk the waterfront at the trail. With the virus conditions that cause the WesBanco Arena and the Capitol Theater to be idle, it brings those who don’t live in the area to gather and make noise late and night and early in the morning hours. Sometimes, fighting occurs, as well. There is a need for steady patrols due to the idling of events such as has occurred in this summer of 2020.

There is a need for more visibility of more safety forces. Those who want to live in peace in the area should not have to endure what is going on.
