By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - The City of Pittsburgh is working more with state officials to address the recent issues on the South Side.

City and state leaders met on Thursday to begin the work on those problems.

State Liquor Control Enforcement is planning to crack down on alcohol offenses, making sure businesses with liquor licenses are complying with state laws.

There is also a strong possibility that Pennsylvania State Police troopers will be seen on the South Side.

"The state police have indicated that they're going to have a greater presence there for us over the course of the next several weeks and maybe months to keep an eye on some of the other activities that are taking place outside of the establishments or immediately adjacent to the establishments," said State Senator Jay Costa.

Pittsburgh Police have already boosted their weekend patrols on East Carson Street and have also re-routed some traffic to ensure that emergency vehicles can respond quickly.
