Neighborhood Beat Meetings
Release date: 5/31/2013
Over the past month, the Streamwood Police Department has conducted four meetings at the police department explaining a new initiative to better inform Streamwood residents about current crime trends, provide safety information, and introduce them to the Patrol Sergeant assigned to the area in which they reside
The new program, Beat Meetings, will expand our current Neighborhood Watch efforts to include those residents not already in an established Neighborhood Watch Group. Over the next few months, a meeting will be held at the police department for the area in which a resident lives. A Patrol Sergeant is assigned to each beat. They are responsible for gathering crime and traffic complaint information and then creating a plan to fight it.
Each month, the Beat Sergeant will speak about topics such as:
Reducing your chances of becoming a victim
Training to become a good observer
How to determine what is suspicious in nature
When you should call 911
Crime trends in your community
Crime prevention tips
