During the summer of 2013, NHPR’s newsroom took a closer look at crime in Manchester and how it affects the city and its residents. The largest city in a small state, in roughly equal proximity to Boston and the White Mountains, Manchester is in an unusual position, balancing small-city challenges with big-city problems.

As part of NHPR's series on crime in Manchester, we sit down with police chief David Mara to discuss challenges facing the state's largest city and its police- from budget constraints to rising crimes associated with drug use. We'll also talk about police-community relations and how the force is learning to work with the city's immigrant communities.

CALL-OUTS:

- Cheryl Wilkie, Senior Vice President of the Farnum Center in Manchester, an addiction treatment and rehab center

- Monica Zulauf, President and CEO of the YWCA in Manchester, which provides services to women, children, and families in Manchester
