Data from the South Bend Police Department show more shootings in 2017 but fewer use of force incidents, and other positives in the numbers.
There were 102 shootings in South Bend in 2017. That’s up from 81 in 2016.
Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski said they’re not happy with the numbers.
“Obviously we had an uptick from shootings in 2016 to 2017. None of us at this table, none of us not at this table, are happy with it at all. One is too many, period.”
