Norfolk, Va. - With almost a dozen cars in Ghent being broken into in the last month police have decided to step up the patrols and stop the criminals.

Instead of the normal eight hour shifts officers work, they'll be patrolling for 10 to 12 hours.

Also, there will be two officers inside the cruisers instead of one an idea that's comforting to Lynn Daly.

“It makes me feel better, we chose this area because we feel like it’s a safe area.”

In addition there will be more officers on bike patrol around Ghent.

The changes will only be for the third division.

The patrols will start November 12th
