    Last time I checked Batabano Plaza is 4 minutes walk away from the West Bay Police Station. Not to mention that a location that has been robbed repeatedly is half of that. 5 minutes walk in the other direction is Four Winds Esso, Timbuktu, Alfreso Restaurant, also victims of robbery. Also 4 minutes away from the junction is Kelly's bar, no need to elaborate here. Given the proximity of the station and the reltive density of the district, proactive policing could help rid the district of these ills. How about officers walking a beat instead of having a pair cruise in patrol car at the top of each hour? Would require too much common sense I think.
