Charlottesville police say fewer people are being arrested on the downtown mall. Arrests on the mall dropped 35 percent in the last year.

That number was announced Thursday at a Place Design Task Force meeting.

Police have increased their presence on the mall in recent months and more officers are on duty during peak crime hours. They say it's a proactive approach to cutting down on crime.
