BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Bellingham Police are relying on a more grass roots community policing style to stop crime in neighborhoods.

Its called NACT, the Neighborhood Anti-Crime Team.

Sergeant Jon Gutierrez says by re-establishing closer contacts with community members they can better respond to a variety of neighborhood issues.

Police need direct feedback, as each neighborhood faces its own independent issues.
