Minutes of the CPRB Meeting Held on February 28, 2006

Total Intake as of 2/28/06 is reported as 76. The number rose to 88 prior to the Board meeting. We are ahead of last year’s Intake at this time of year by 57%; Mrs. Bianculli attended the South Side Community Council Crime Prevention meeting on February 27, 2006 at the Brashear Center, South Side. The community has seen an increase in quality of life crimes. In particular, there was wide concern about an alleged murder and belief that the police weren’t being candid with the neighbors. In fact, the incident was a suicide and was under police investigation; Pittinger offered a recommendation that the Board sponsor several meetings around the City to accept comment on police related public safety concerns and include the Councilwoman as Chair of Council’s Public Safety Committee and the Chief of Police; Ms. Hinton previously requested a courtesy meeting with Mayor O’Connor and is awaiting a time and date.
