LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As part of an exclusive, multi-part interview with WDRB on Thursday, Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad sat down with David Scott and Lindsay Allen to talk about possible solutions to the crime and drug problems in the city.

For people who don't live in what Chief Conrad calls "hot spots," he said it has to be an effort from the whole community.

"We all have a vested interest in making sure these neighborhoods are safe," Chief Conrad said. "If a parent is not raising your child, the streets will raise that child. And a kid raised in the streets will end up in a gang.

"You can go to anyone of those problematic neighbors, and you've got kids doing great things. It all comes down to whether you had someone in you life who cared. A caring adult is a big deal. It doesn't necessarily have to be a parent."
