CHARLOTTE — As angry and frustrated residents confront the Charlotte City Council on Monday about rising crime and problems with the state's criminal justice system, the city manager will recommend a $2.5 million plan of attack.
Curt Walton is proposing the council approve funding to increase the number of electronic monitoring devices for repeat offenders, add technology and staff in the district attorney's office and add positions in the Police Department's crime lab and 911 center.
