Crime Prevention

If you have a concern or question about a crime-related issue in our neighborhood, please feel free to contact the resources below. Also, during our monthly board meetings we are usually visited by at least one of our local police officers. This is a good time to connect and communicate any concerns you are having. If you have a larger crime-related issue, please contact the officer directly (see info. below) or email the HAND Chair prior to a meeting so that we can allocate the appropriate time for the issue.
