Police Chief Paul Bernat says the police department has been putting administrators out on the streets to get more officers on patrol.

Bernat, Mayor Robin Christiansen, City Council President David Bonar all stressed that police, city government, the public, religious organizations and other groups can work together to fight crime.

Bonar has this simple message for residents.

"If you see something and if you hear something, say something. It isn't snitching, it's saving," said Bonar.

"I want to ensure the public that the Dover Police Department is utilizing every resource available to put the end to these violent crimes, and get the assailants off the streets," said Chief Bernat.
