U.S. Army goes door-to-door in Macon neighborhoods to combat violence

This week, members of the U.S. Army are partnering with the Macon Violence Prevention program to survey neighborhoods that see the most crime. The Unionville and Pleasant Hill neighborhoods may be miles apart, but they have one thing in common -- a higher crime rate. That’s one reason why Spencer Hawkins with Macon-Bibb EMA says the U.S. Army reached out to them and offered to help them get answers. Several people 13WMAZ spoke to who didn’t feel comfortable going on camera said they aren’t interested. They say it stems from empty promises of change, law enforcement taking too long to respond to calls, and violence that happens in broad daylight.
