Next Monday, 7:30 pm: November Police Community Meeting
At a time when police-community relation is on everyone’s mind, it’s important that we bring our residents and police officers on a forum and have a dialogue on what both groups want to see – keeping our neighborhood a safe place to live for everyone. Our Community Police meetings are regularly attended by the police officers who actually patrol our streets and officials who run City’s police programs.
Please bring any public safety and crime – related issues that you or your neighbor may have experienced. The officers and officials will be at the meeting to listen and address your questions/concerns and give practical advice on making your neighborhood safer.
In addition to discussing public safety-related issues, we’ll spend some time on a basic Neighborhood Watch training program. Police can’t be everywhere at once and must rely on the active participation of community residents for crime prevention. Also, not everyone can afford a home security system. Since crime is most likely to occur when no one is watching, a Neighborhood Watch team can act as an extra set of “eyes and ears” when police aren’t around. Neighborhood Watch does more than just canvass the community. It also gives residents an opportunity to get to know others in the neighborhood, open the lines of communication with local police, and encourage better overall cooperation among residents in crime prevention efforts. Participation in Neighborhood Watch builds confidence and encourages residents to take an active interest in one another’s properties and livelihoods.
I hope to see many of you at this month’s meeting!
