August 31st 2011 19thWCA Public Safety Meeting
In Beechwood the CPOs and community together have put the resources of probation and parole at burglary incidents. The RPD has partnered with specific neighborhoods. Flyering, \community involvement and working with neighbors is a multiplier when combating crime.
The Thurston and Roslyn corner store has been the scene of problems and drugs sales in the vicinity. A Blue Light camera has been installed. The question was asked if the camera Is being monitored and how does the monitoring work . A note was made to ask the NSC office about that store.
On Hawley Street at a drug housea portable camera was set-up.
There are unintended consequences to cameras because the drug traffic moves elsewhere out of the cameras range.
Gangs: (which are now apparently called “loosely associated youth groups”) Gang incidents can multiply because retaliations cause a cycle of problems and crimes. The RPD does intervention as best as it can.
If you look at the number of incidents involving gunshot victims, it is at or below a 10 year low almost every month since last September. 2011 is 38% below last year in reports of shooting victims.
There does not appear to be an increase in gang activity. There is an increase in intervention by the Rochester Youth Intervention Program working with Pathways to Peace, Parole, Probation, Camp Good Days, and Strong. These groups meet together once a month and try to go after people involved in acts of violence.
