Mayor Kirsten Keith and Police Chief Bob Jonsen will host two more community meetings. Last month, a community meeting was held in the Willow’s neighborhood at Laurel School Upper to specifically address the residential burglaries in the area. Due to a high attendance at that meeting, two additional community meetings to address residential burglaries, vehicle burglaries and crime prevention will be held.

Mayor Keith, Chief Jonsen and police staff will give an update on crime statistics, current events, and have an open discussion on addressing the community’s public safety concerns. Police staff will provide information to help answer questions on the crime rate, investigations, arrests and current and future plans to address property crime. Informational stations will also be available for Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED)  and Neighborhood Watch programs.
