CONSIDER THIS: Honesty about safety risk

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson Police are warning women to be on alert because of an increase in attacks. Please take this notice seriously and follow their suggestions to protect yourself and lessen your chance of being a victim.  

Unfortunately, some people criticized Chief Vance and his team for making this announcement. I applaud him and believe there should me more transparency and honesty when there are possible safety issues.

Too often, however, people want to suppress the information, especially politicians, because it might be bad for business and negatively affect the reputation of a community. That’s sad.

Consider This:

Sharing the information allows people to make wise decisions and be better prepared. When people are more aware that could mean more tips for police, which could lead to less crime and safer communities. And that has a positive impact on the community.
