Notification of nearby neighbors.
Whether nearby residents
are being notified and being debriefed after burglaries , so that all
of those who might have seen something have an opportunity to
share that information, has been an on -going issue. The police have a very different policy than
what most residents might expect or prefer to see, according to the
informal discussions I have had with Township residents
and with the police and in personal experience on this issue .
It is my understanding after these
discussions that each case individually is in the hands of
one person in charge of hte case who decides whether neighbors should be questioned
or informed ----or not. I sure know that I ( and
virtually everyone I've spoken to ) would like to be informed in
ALL cases that are in proximity of my house. I also would
like to know that everyone likely to have seen something is
properly questioned .
If you are interested in holding a meeting with your neighbors,
I would be glad to
join you - on this or on other issues . Perhaps by getting together in this manner we can
find a unified view and work together with our police on this
issue of great importance.
