In response to some citizen concerns about youths throwing rocks at bicyclists on the southwest bike path (near Allied Drive), officers from the West District community policing team provided the area with some extra attention last week. In addition, officers knocked on doors in the neighborhood to talk to residents about the issue, and about other safety concerns in the area.
West District officers continue to work proactively to address public safety issues in the district and to respond to citizen concerns. While doing so, we emphasize that the responsibility for ensuring public safety and maintaining our quality of life does not belong only to the police. It is shared by all members of the community, including residents and other City agencies. Officers work very hard to develop and maintain relationships in our neighborhoods, and to stay engaged with the community.
