DAVIS, Calif. -- It's been a rough year for many cities across Northern California when it comes to violent crime, but one is trying a variety of methods to keep their streets safe.
Davis recently expanded their moratorium on bars and nightclubs to next Fall.
Police said they want to take a time-out allowing new bars or nightclubs in downtown while they continue to make safety improvements. City officials want input from residents during the process.
Back in August, a 23-year-old Southern California man was stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack by alleged gang members, according to officers.
Ever since that burst of violence, Davis PD has made keeping downtown safe priority one.
Wednesday night, there will be a community discussion regarding downtown safety. Residents we talked to said they have suggestions they’d like to see implemented.
