Just an FYI that there will be a Commander's Forum next Tuesday, April 7th at 6:30pm at MacCallum HS. For anyone who has not attended one, it's a time for residents in our area to meet with the police and hear about new initiatives, crime trends, etc. and to have our concerns heard. I encourage everyone who can to attend. I'll be going so please let me know if you want to ride with me.

In addition, I have asked our District Rep Officers AJ Rodriquez and Kelly LaHood to respond to the listserv about what police are doing in light of the recent increase in crime. I hope to gain more info about this at the forum as well.
