Private Money Boosts Police Unit In Redding

May 30, 2017

Redding's Neighborhood Police Unit (NPU) racked up some impressive numbers in curtailing crime in its first couple of years.

But city voters rejected a sales tax in the November 2016 election that would have provided continued funding for NPU. 

Yet it persists; a campaign to raise the money privately has been set up, and Bethel Church pledged $500,000 and some additional funds to help keep neighborhood policing intact. 

Cory McCandliss is the fundraising director for the campaign and our guest.
