MANCHESTER - A body was found on the sidewalk in Manchester today at 480 Chestnut St. No details have been released as to the cause of death. Passer-by say it appears the man was sleeping on the sidewalk and they never thought that he might be dead.
Police received a call early this morning and arrived to the scene. They are currently still searching for his identity. Police have identified this neighborhood as what they call a 'hot spot' for increased police activity. New crime tracker software has been in place since March and it allows police to accurately pin-point areas in need of more officers.
"It's shows a red hot, sight so hence the 'hot spot' and we actually saturate those areas more frequently it's statically proven that between twelve to sixteen minutes per stop, an officer stopping at a particular hot spot can deter crime and make an arrest if a crime is happening," said Sargent Brian O'Keefe.
Police say since the software has been in place they've seen significant success but they are still tweaking the system.
