Shelby County Sheriff's Department cracks down on crime

The Shelby County Sheriff's department carried out a crime crackdown in several Memphis suburbs Friday night.

Action News 5's Andrew Douglas rode along with Lt. Calvin Harris as he patrolled the streets as part of the concentrated enforcement effort in northeast Shelby County.

Cordova resident Sharon Cain said she had lobbied for such an enforcement for years.  Of crime in her neighborhood, "we have more with the juveniles," She said.

Cain said her neighborhood association, of which she is an active member, is in constant contact with the Shelby County Sheriff's Department in hopes of frequent patrols.

"I would be happy to see a police officer on every other block," she said.
