“I’m going to make sure they’re represented in the way they want me to represent them,” she tells ‘Wake Up Memphis,’ “and present them to the public as just regular people, and that’s just what we are.”With a soaring crime rate, the Memphis Police Department has already investigated more than 200 homicides this year.
To tackle the violence and crime, Cage tells ‘Wake Up Memphis’ “citizens need to step up and come forward with information, as there is a shortage of police officers in our city.
“The police can’t be everywhere,” Cage tells Walensky, “we need the public to assist us. If you see something, report it. And that comes along with establishing trust and establishing a relationship with the public.”Cage has 23 years on the job at the Memphis Police Department.
“In my mind, it’s an honor and it’s a privilege to represent these officers who are working their butts off every single day and night,” she says.
