RPCL board meeting Sept. 7 – focus on crime and public safety.

Dear Roland Park Community Members- the Civic League board will be dedicating the majority of September 7th’s board meeting to the topic of crime, public safety, and what we can do in response. We encourage you to join us at 7 PM in the Roland Park Presbyterian Church basement (across Roland Avenue from Petite Louis) on Wednesday evening 9/7/2016.

Major Gibson, Northern Police District leader, will be joining us.

We plan to cover these aspects: (1) facts and progress regarding current RP-area crime investigations; (2) crime statistics and data trending; (3) status and plans on police presence and patrols; (4) public safety outreach and awareness; (5) community-led actions by nearby neighboring communities, e.g., citizens patrols and community-paid private security; and (6) potential infrastructure improvements like lighting.

We have much to cover, and we plan to have significant opportunity for questions and discussion so we may understand possibilities and community perspectives.

Thank you & I hope to see you there.

Ian MacFarlane, RPCL president
