Nearly 50 residents of the Ocean Street area joined us for a discussion on issues impacting their area. Residents expressed concerns about drug and alcohol activity, especially in the northern section of Ocean Street. Our department committed to helping neighbors address the problems and provided some tools for residents to contact us. In addition, we spoke about ways we can modify our patrols to target these issues in that area.
These forums are a wonderful opportunity for our department to hear directly from residents, in their neighborhoods, at times convenient for them to attend. It allows us to learn about new issues or reinforce our thoughts on what our officers have seen. We’d like to thank everyone that attended and we will post information about our next beat meeting soon.
