From the President
As president of this association, one of my duties is to address crime.
I would first like to say that over the years, Iíve seen our neighborhood become a safer place in which to live.
Why is it that way? Because a number of residents began calling 911 and 311 whenever they saw suspicious activity. And guess what? The crime began to dissipate.
We have a wonderful working relationship with the officers in our district and we can help them help us by increasing our presence in the park and on our streets. (Yes, folks, the benches are there for us to sit and read. If we donít use them, the drug dealers will.) We can also help by staying on the lookout and filling our anonymous crime action sheets with license numbers and personal descriptions anytime we see a person we think is buying or selling drugs. (If you donít have an action sheet, see me at the meeting.) Remember, problems get worse by the minute. Letís take back our streets before they get out of control.
Until next time, Karen Fretz, President
