DAYTON Police are depending more on citizen groups to watch for crime in their neighborhoods while facing the prospect of fewer police on streets.
It takes being involved, said Lodia Furnas, president of the Burkhardt-Springfield Neighborhood Association. Its going to take the citizens to stand up, speak out and work with the officers we have to protect our city.
Furnas, who has lived in her tidy Huffman Avenue home for 48 years, is something of a legend beyond the confines of the 2nd District.
