Several residents in Bridgeport are seeking changes after complaining of several issues in the North End.
The residents voiced their concerns Thursday night during a public safety community forum at Blackham School.
Dozens of people came out for the forum, many of them outspoken about problems they say have been happening for a long time.
Several of them brought up the lack of parking, aggressive driving, and drug trafficking in the neighborhood, as well as underage drinking, and parties at Sacred Heart University.
Mayor Ganim, Chief AJ Perez and city councilmembers were also present listening to the concerns.
They say they understand where they're coming from and have been working to address some of the problems.
For example, according to police, they have been running extra security detail to curb illegal activities.
