Our view: Cameras, extra police presence, and citizen involvement have been a deterrent to gun violence.

We're in the month of December and Dubuque has seen a remarkable decrease in gun violence.

In the year 2018, we have had only 4 shots fired calls, with two injuries this year and there has been a drastic downward trend. In the year 2015, there were thirty-three shots fired calls, six injuries and two deaths.

This all can be contributed to Dubuque Police Chief Dalsing adding increasing police presence to troubled areas of the city, increased video cameras provided by our city leaders and citizen reports of seeing individuals with guns and cases being taken by the federal courts.

Let us hope this can be a trend that can continue.

Great Job Dubuque
