Utah political leaders visit Rio Grande homeless area


(KUTV) After Utah political leaders visit the Rio Grande homeless area, they say they will find the money to have more cops present in downtown Salt Lake City.

Governor Spencer Cox held a council meeting today and says "more cops will soon be permanent".

"We are going to help restore this area for those who want to follow the law" Cox said.

Many neighbors and business owners welcome the extra security measure, but the homeless community doubts whether more cops will do much good.
