San Carlos Police Town Hall Meeting — April 30
April 29, 2009
Update: The Daily Journal did a nice job covering this meeting. Here's their article — Police: Watch Out for Each Other.
Concerned about crime in San Carlos?
As much as we pride ourselves in being a sleepy, bedroom community, San Carlos is not immune to crime. Recently, it seems as if thefts have been on the uptick — especially vehicle break-ins. And if you couple this with the recent rash of slashed tires and car vandalism in White Oaks, it's pretty apparent that the problem is getting worse before it gets better.
Battling these types of crimes is tough for the police department because the crimes are so random in nature, and they also tend to happen in the middle of the night, when staffing is at its lowest. It's evident that more eyes and ears to protect our streets — hence the post I wrote about starting a Neighborhood Watch Program in San Carlos.
Police Department Town Hall Meeting
Last month, the police department announced they will host a town hall meeting to discuss crime in San Carlos, and how citizens can work together with the San Carlos Police to help reduce crime in our town. The meeting is this coming Thursday April 30 at 7:00 PM. Here's a flyer with all of the details:
If you've ever thought about starting a neighborhood watch on your block, or you just want to find out more about how the SCPD operates, this meeting is an opportunity that you won't want to miss. Kudos to Chief Rothaus for reaching out to the community in this manner. I hope this meeting is well attended by the residents of San Carlos.
