Some East Dayton Alleys to Be Blocked to Curb Illegal Activities
Police will be closing East Dayton alleys in an effort to curb crime.
Streets will not be closed, but some alleys will be blocked, in one East Dayton neighborhood in an attempt to curb drug and prostitution activities. The City of Dayton recently announced that it will not block streets south of East Third Street in the Burkhart Neighborhood due to concerns regarding traffic flow for RTA and school bus services. However, Dayton still plans to place concrete barriers in alleys between South Garfield and South Jersey streets. Placing concrete barriers to block traffic through streets and alleys is a common, and legal, tactic of police departments to try to stop access to illegal activities in neighborhoods. Concrete barriers and wrought-iron fencing have been installed in certain West Dayton neighborhoods. The tactic appears to impede criminal activity, as statistics show a drop in crime in areas where the barriers are in place. But one drawback of such barriers is that anyone legitimately traveling in the area may draw the suspicions of local police.
