Issues of Concern / Neighborhood Crime Report:

Community Organizing Strategies:
Task Force members met for a potluck meeting in the front yard of a Van Nest Ave. homeowner. The Task Force discussed specific concerns the Van Nest block has had with the drug house on their block (in view of the meeting) and there current strategy to confront the negative and criminal activity happening on their block, due to this drug house. CPS Thompson and Lt. Przynski are vary involved with surveillance of this drug house and continually collecting data from neighbors on the drug and other criminal activity happening at this location.
The Task Force benefited from each other’s exchange of neighborhood crime fighting stories.
The food was most excellent.
