Greater City Providence

West Side Crime Watch Meeting tonight, January 22

WBNA is holding a Crime Watch Meeting tonight at their headquarters on Westminster Street:

Crime Watch Meeting January 22, 2008
6:30pm to 7:30pm
At WBNA Headquarters
1560 Westminster Street

Happy New Year!

The Neighborhood Acton Crime Watch Group meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month with interested and concerned neighbors, Members of the Attorney Generals office and District 4 Providence police to address current crime and quality of life issues, as well as the planning of certain neighborhood events. Please join us this Tuesday for the first Neighborhood Acton Crime Watch meeting of 2008.

This meeting is always open to all.

AGENDA : This month, our primary focus will be on the alarming increase in gang activity (and shootings) in the West End, and the subsequent barrage of graffiti that we have been witnessing. We have had many reports of private as well as public property being defaced, and at this meeting we will discuss how we can get it cleaned up ASAP, as well as what we can do to prevent this disturbing trend from continuing in our neighborhood.

On hand for this meeting, in addition to Linda Calderone from the Attorney General’s office and Lt. Mary Day, we hope to have representatives from the city’s Graffiti Task Force and the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services.

Please bring to this meeting, if you are able:

  • any information you have about taggers or suspected taggers
  • photos of graffiti and taggers
  • neighbors interested in graffiti abatement

If you have other issues or concerns, please bring them to the table on Tuesday for discussion.
