Our monthly safety walks aim to make our neighborhood safer by promoting the visibility of neighbors walking together as eyes and ears on the street, and by closely communicating with local law enforcement and security professionals. We note safety problems - illegal dumping, burned out street lights or trees blocking street lights, overgrown shrubbery, graffiti, abandoned vehicles, etc. - and report them to 311, and then forward complaint numbers to the CVCBD sanitation team. We follow up until complaints are resolved. If we observe suspicious activity, police officers patrolling with us or working in the area investigate.
Join neighbors for this month's walk with Tony Brown, Safety Director of the Benefits District, and an officer from Northern District Police. The walk begins at the Open Space on 32nd Street between Guilford and Abell. Gather at the conclusion for refreshments and conversation - location to be announced at the walk. All ages and pets are welcome!
Neighborhood safety walks will continue though the summer and fall. They take place monthly on the third Tuesday beginning at 7:30 p.m., starting from the Open Space. The September walk date is Tuesday, September 17.
