The Lubbock Police Department increased their presence in an East Lubbock neighborhood following an uptick in gun violence earlier this year, and the data shows their tactics are working.

On this episode of Listen in, Lubbock, we look at the complicated relationship between police and the mostly minority, East Lubbock community—a relationship that has historical roots—and how the Lubbock Police Department is working to gain trust.
