EL PASO - The El Paso Police department wants to toughen its stance on gangs and drunk driving.
Police Chief Greg Allen is concerned about this year's spike in homicides, some of which may be gang related, he said.
El Paso has had 17 homicides so far this year, compared to 16 in all of last year.
Chief Allen also wants to increase the DWI Task Force to tackle El Paso's problem with drunk drivers, he said.
He wants to increase foot patrol in downtown El Paso, so officers can spend more time on the streets, he said.
