For years the Determine Drive, Kelso, and Swapps Street have always been known for crime related incidents.

This year alone there has been multiple thefts, arson, stabbings, shootings, and one fatality. This is also a neighborhood where many gang members reside and or hangout.


Additionally, there was several clean up events focused towards some notable areas on Determine this year, which was affective for a short time, but shortly went back to its old ways.

Some elected officials blamed the property owners for not keeping up with their property, despite receiving monthly checks from their tenants.

What will it take to make this area a better place?
