The Mcknight Neighborhood Watch will move it’s meeting to follow the Sector F Team Beat Police meeting on October 20th. The Sector F meeting will run form 5:30-6:15 with the Neighborhood Watch meeting to follow. This month we asked for the SPD to provide training on Gang activity: how to spot it and what we can do to report it in our neighborhood.
We hope that by having the meetings together there is a more synergy, participation, and engagement from neighbors. It will also simplify meeting days hopefully generating more attendees. The website has been updated and we expect to meet with Dep Cochrane and Kathy Brown to confirm the format.(we will also keep Ben Swan notified of these meetings as well.)
We are looking for your input on what types of trainings you’d like to see for these meetings.
The biggest initiatives continue to be getting block captain commitments from neighbors and educating neighbors on how to report. Then how to follow up on that request after it’s been reported.
We continue to ask that you call crimes into 787-6302 for non emergencies or 911 for emergencies. The TEXT A TIP number 274637 and type SOLVE in the message is a great solution if want to report anonymous crimes.
We still continue to get results with follow up issues directed to Dep Cochrane and Reggie Miller after items have been properly called in.
There continue to be break ins, petty theft, assaults, and drug issues on Bowdoin,Bay,and Girard-especially during the late night and overnight times.
Ideally we’d like to get a point person inside Cathedral Hill Apts and the Girard Ave complex engaged. Each complex could really use its own “Watch”.
We got a complaint from Valerie Carmen on Thompson St regarding the truck traffic and noise from the Cozy Courtyard on State St. We asked she call it in and we will also follow up with Officer Miller.
