EEAC MINUTES – MONDAY, January 4, 2010
Extreme Winter Conditions limited attendance- ice, snow and very cold conditions!
Call to order
Laurie Keleher - called the meeting to order at 7PM. Contact: email@example.com
The Captain presented crime stats with 8% lower rates in 2009 than 2008. In Dec 09, the 8 reported offenses were all property related. Breaking and entry is the biggest concern. There was a discussion about Hamilton County early release of 21,000 inmates and how repeat offenders affect street crime in our area. Consideration was given to distributing pictures of persons wanted for questioning. Web sites are becoming an important tool for law enforcement and can facilitate the distribution of photographic images. Complaints were heard about on going littering in the Garden District and the need for code enforcement. Go to http://www.citizenobserver.com to get text message alerts on crime as it happens!
