Tackling crime in Geneva
Geneva has the highest criminality rate in Switzerland. Last year, we asked for the city to react. But the police has remained the most unprofessional. Things may be about to change. The Geneva police is launching the "Figaro" operation. It will boost up its presence in the Pâquis, Eaux-Vives, Rive and around Cornavin. The goal is to punish small crimes, be visible, and regain the confidence of the population. Is this the right way to go? Abortion is already legal, social problems are minimal. A more effective police might be just what is needed.
