Come on, Just because there has been three weeks without a shooting, they want to call it quits. Let's wait and see how long will be before we hear the shootings, perhaps one day or one week. Whey would they stop it if they claim that is working? Things are not going to be fixed in this three weeks, this should crime emergency should stay longer if not permanent.

They should not tell the gang members that the operation is over
let them think that it is still going on, but that is taking the overtime away, Humm, just a thought

I think that this kind of statement could prove to be extremely counterproductive. After all I can easily imagine lying low until the police stepp away, which is just three weeks later. MY feeling is that to truly impact this terrible situation the program either needs to be permanent or permanent if even at a somewhat lower level of staffing.
We have had 3 good weeks so we are going home makes no sense to me.
I should like though to acknowledge the good work that has been done by the PD during this time, my point is - keep it up.
