JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Westside residents are speaking up about violence in their community. Monday night the residents gathered to hear from Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford.
"I lay in the bed every night and I hear gunshots," said Pamela Miller, a long-time resident on Remington Street.
Miller says in the last few years she's seen an increase in violence crime.
"I do not go outside after dark," said Miller.
That's the same case for Keely Kopp. She moved back to the Murray Hill area after going to college in Tallahassee and it's nothing like what she remembers.
"I remember when I was little I never really felt unsafe, but the house in our neighborhood got broken into around 11 in the day," said Kopp.
