MINNEAPOLIS - A neighborhood walk was held on Saturday which coincided with a Minneapolis police effort to crack down on crime.

Community members in north Minneapolis continued recent efforts to combat a spike in violence with a walk titled "Take Back the Streets."

Neighbors came together Saturday afternoon to let everyone know they aren't backing down.

"Hey we are here. We want a change in our community. And by doing that we've got to show support, and we have to stand together side by side," one advocate said.

The walk comes as Minneapolis police adds extra officers.

Four additional officers have been added to both the north and south side beats through Labor Day.
