Illegal carrying of firearms on city streets Fort Myers Police Department made 99 arrests

In an effort to curtail the illegal carrying of firearms on city streets, the City of Fort Myers Police Department made 99 arrests in February.The effort is called Operation Safe Neighborhood. Undercover officers and officers from the department's vice and patrol units worked in the operation, officials report.
"The goal is to identify and arrest people that commit violent crimes and to arrest individuals who illegally possess firearms," police officials said in a release sent to the media today.Numbers cited by the police department: 617 traffic stops; 272 traffic citations; 99 arrests; 94 felony charges; and 64 guns confiscated.

“The unit is enhanced by intelligence information from concerned citizens and informants. Tipsters can remain anonymous. Every illegal gun taken off our streets is one less gun that can be used against an innocent citizen, gun down an officer or carelessly end up in the hands of a child,” said Major Doug Baker.Since January 1, the task force has removed 64 guns from city streets. The operation is still under way.
