Folks often ask, “What is EastPAC? What does the organization do?”
Our mission: The East Precinct Advisory Council (EastPAC) provides a forum to resolve public safety priorities; evaluates, advocates and facilitates strategies that reduce crime and improve the quality of life for the East Precinct Community; and actively partners with law enforcement and other entities to address barriers to these outcomes.
That said, how do we ‘resolve public safety’? How does the EastPAC Board know what to advocate for? We get that information from citizens, and, as a community, we need to inform and educate our Police Department, identifying what we experience in our neighborhoods and what we are concerned about.
We will be having this discussion at this Thursday’s meeting.
• What has been done that has made your neighborhood safer?
• What needs to be done?
• Where are the hot spots?
This is not information that comes from aggregate 911 data alone. We need your input to help the police to serve you better and ‘resolve’ public safety issues.
The Precinct Command Staff will be present to also update you on recent violence in the area, as well as other issues.
Please plan to attend and bring your neighbors!
