The forum's Umesh Singh says Phoenix has its issues like other communities, but with teamwork from residents - they claim back their area. 

"The community plays a very vital role in crime-fighting with them constantly passing on information about drugs and drug-related incidents. With specific details, it all helps, and it gives us direction to work on," he said.
