Notes from BPD Community Safety Meeting on 2/16 - Let's discuss!

In Attendance:

From BPD: Commissioner Davis, Captain Greeland, Lt. Cruz, Sgt. Krause, Carolyn MacNiel (Neighborhood Watch) plus other personel
From the Sheriffs Office: Sheriff Cabral
From MBTA Police: Lt. Shea
From the State: Representative Malia
From City Council: Councilor Tobin, Aides from Ayana Presley and Felix Arroyo
From the Mayors Office: Colleen Keller
About 15 residents and business owners from JP

COMMISSIONER DAVIS SAID:
- BPD has been actively working on active cases resulting in significant arrests related to robbery

SHERIFF CABRAL:
- Wanted to take action, as she live here in JP.

OUTCOMES:
- Lighting needs to be improved on South West Corridor park.
- Units will remain assigned to Stonybrook Area
- As a community we will work with MBTA to place permanent public safety signs on platforms (don't show valuables/ipod/iphone/sidekick on the train).

POINTS OF INTEREST:
- There were 21 robberies with 1,500 feet of Stonybrook from Nov 1 to Feb 14
- Most crimes are committed in the late evening hours Monday through Friday
- Most robberies are being committed by teens who have committed more than one robbery
- Robbers get away because if your phone is stolen you can't call the police immediately. Don't use your phone on the way home, it won't get stolen, and you won't have to call the police.

WHAT BPD HAS BEEN DOING:
- Patrol Cars
- Sting Operations
- Posted on NFN
- Detective riding around the area
- Working with the Hyde Square Task force to make a PSA about safety by teen for the public. Cool

OUR ACTION STEPS:
- Organize a Boston Shines Clean Up on your street and meet your neighbors!
- Use Citizen Connect to report lights that are out, graffiti (itunes store)
- Attend Community Police, First Thursdays - see e13bpd.com or here nfn
- Women, attend a RAPE AGGRESSION DEFENSE SYSTEM - see e13bpd.com
- Join your Neighborhood Zone Group
- Call 911 to report suspicious behavior and after you've been robbed, and almost got robbed - this way you'll help protect the next person that comes along.

Yes, thanks. I've noticed also that a lot less cars are getting smashed on my street (near Stony Brook). I think the increased police presence has helped.

Thanks for posting this for people who were unable to attend. It seems at least from the crime maps that the frequency has greatly decreased over the last month or so, if that's accurate, hopefully the police and community have made some progress in addressing this and that's great.
