SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC)- Some residents of a crime plagued neighborhood in Summerville are calling for a permanent police presence following a home invasion and shooting there.
A proposed police substation for the Robynwyn subdivision will be discussed next month by Summerville Town Council's public safety committee.
Janie Hudson lives in Palmetto Park which is located right behind Robynwyn. Hudson has seen her share of crime.
"It's very bad. It's a shame because there's been two drive by shootings," Hudson said.
The May 1, 2013 home invasion and shooting on Myrtle place sparked a call for a police substation in Robynwyn.
Town councilman Walter Bailey said a permanent police presence might deter crime, but there are problems.
