  • Sgt. Sgt. Terestre provided the monthly crime report (Dec 7 – Jan 6), and compared crime statistics to those of the same period from the prior year. Although total crime is down to 60 incidents versus 67 in the same period last year, robberies with a gun increased from 0 to 3.

  • Community member Ibrahim Mumin shared that there will be a community forum on January 29th from 6:30 to 8:30pm (location TBD) entitled “What to Do When You’re Stopped by the Police.” The forum aims to prevent escalation of interactions between police and community members, especially youth, in light of the national issue surrounding police interactions with civilians.
