    The Downtown Impact Team -- created in 2014 -- currently has one squad and one supervisor dedicated to the downtown area, but the new plan will add one more of each to serve as community resource officers. These officers will work with residents, business owners and downtown stakeholders for public safety needs.

    The Public Safety Hub located at 416 South Main Street will serve as office space for the community resource officers.
