Mayor-elect talks crime prevention, Toney Armstrong’s future

Reducing crime was the number one issue in the mayoral election. Jim Strickland won.

Now several citizens are wondering if Director Armstrong is part of Strickland’s vision for Memphis.

“I think it’s too early to tell,” Strickland said. “You know, violent crime is more than the police department. Just as I’ve said, We have got to be tough on crime; we have got to do something for these young people, so they pick the right path in life and not the wrong path.”
