Andrew Adams, KSL Newsradio There's a new police unit hitting the streets of Ogden next week. Officers in it will be cracking down in the city's most dangerous neighborhood.

It's called the Crime Reduction Unit. But, forget the common sense name. Chief Jon Greiner says it's no-nonsense policing. "We're going to eradicate those who just don't want to be good neighbors, and we're going to do it with zero tolerance," Greiner said.

It's the area from 20th Street to 30th Street, between Washington and Harrison. Police say the roughly 8-block stretch is home to a quarter of the city's rapes, murders, robberies and drug activity.

The officers won't be looking to give warnings; there will be citations and arrests.
