City of Salisbury Responds to the Spike in Violence

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- A weekly safety briefing is coming to the City of Salisbury in an effort to keep the public informed.

 

Chief Barbara Duncan of the Salisbury Police Department confirms five murders since the beginning of June and she said this up-tick in violence in Salisbury is unacceptable.

 

Starting next Tuesday the City of Salisbury and it's safety agencies are coming together to keep the public informed and answer any questions or concerns.

 

"You are going to see a lot more use of the available technology as we roll forward and how we use that technology to make sure that we get the message out and people stay informed. That if they have questions they can communicate back with us almost in real time if you will," Chief Duncan said.

 

Raymone Jones who lost his brother, Mike, and cousin, Griffin, in the Denny's shoot out in early June said while he wants to stop the violence as well, he doesn't know an easy solution.

 

Jones said, " I really don't know. I don't know what's going on but there's just so much going on and its murder, after murder, after murder ... and its like I don't know."

 

Duncan said starting August 8th, the City of Salisbury and the Salisbury Police and Fire Department will begin streaming on the City's Facebook and Twitter at 10 o'clock each week.
