Philly DA says Gun Stat will work in Memphis

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said his city's Gun Stat program can work in Memphis and help make our communities safer.

The program is very similar to the Memphis Police Department's Blue Crush program that targets high crime areas with police, except it gives a double whammy with extra emphasis on prosecution.

When is "Gun Stat" coming to a community near you? That's hard to say. Mayor A C Wharton and Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich are examining it to see what parts of the program can be applied to Memphis, without it violating state laws and not costing a lot of extra money.
