On night three of Harrison’s meet and greet tour of the city he was at Cherry Hill Elementary/ Middle School. Some of the concerns people had there were about corrupt officers and how Harrison will clean up the department.

Many people came out to let Harrison and his wife know that they want to help and that they have their full support.

One woman said she is a lifelong Brooklyn resident, but she is getting sick of seeing drug use and prostitution every time she walks out her door.

“We want to not only target the women and our men who could be out there, but the people who are perpetuating it off having someone else perform those criminal acts,” Harrison said. “Certainly, every neighborhood is going to be important to eradicate that so you can feel comfortable and proud of your neighborhood and the children don’t have to be tainted by seeing that.”

Harrison will continue his tour on Thursday from 7-9 at Fort Worthington Elementary/Middle School.
