Baton Rouge Police Chief Dewayne White has been on the job less than a month and he's already tackling crime, meeting the community and getting to know his new department.

He stopped by 2une In for his first interview since taking over to talk about his plans to combat crime in the city.

White says the high poverty and unemployment rates are major contributing factors to the rise in crime in Baton Rouge.
