Meridian, Miss. The holidays are over, and city leaders in Meridian are praising the police department for a job well done.
Throughout the holiday season Meridian police heavily increased patrols. Chief James Lee and Mayor Percy Bland say that this strategy was successful in more ways than one.
"For us it's a very good success, our first year in office we showed that we can make this city safe, and that we will continue to make this city safe," says Chief Lee.
"Listen, there were a lot of people out," says Mayor Bland. "I'm in sales myself and I want to see the numbers in February or March. I think that we did well this Christmas shopping season, and I'm sure that the businesses did well."
