Mayor Berke discusses the ongoing spree of shootings in the city

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) Mayor Andy Berke says the city’s priority right now for tackling gang violence is putting police officers on the street to make more arrests.

The Mayor appeared today on News 12 This Morning.

He admits that police are making arrests, but the gang members get right back out on the streets.

Mayor Berke says he will also work on alternative programs to keep people from joining gangs.

Joe Legge also asked him about the idea of a community safety zone, where gang members would be arrested for coming into the zone.
