MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis city leaders worked on how they can crack down on youth crime as a meeting Wednesday night.

Councilwoman Jamita Swearengen hosted the second meeting for the Crime Prevention and Intervention Task Force.

The task force will develop solutions to crime problems that impact citizens by taking input from residents.

“An idea that we came up with was implementing more programs that cater to youth so that we can stay out of trouble,” Mackenzie Walker said.

Another idea was to ask youth for input on ways to prevent crime in school.
