Police open substation at Cranston Housing Authority manor

A Rhode Island housing complex known for criminal activity has some new tenants — the police.

The tallest building in Cranston, the 13-story Knightsville Manor, is the new location for a police substation. Officers at the manor will have 24-hour access to the same databases available at police headquarters.

In addition to the placement of the substation, police say a new community-policing campaign includes the installation of surveillance cameras and is expected to include a greater effort to screen out problem tenants.

Police say Knightsville Manor had become the site of drug-dealing, fights and other problems.

The space, technology and office furniture were donated to police by the Cranston Housing Authority.
