Summer Safety Success [August-September 2010 print edition]

By Bob Barnwell

Monday, September 13th is the next Public Safety Committee meeting at the Korean American Center at 745 Buchanan. At the 7:00 PM meeting we will discuss our “Summer Safety Success”. We will acknowledge the reasons for the safe summer, including strong summer youth programs, community awareness and involvement, and police beat patrols. We will recognize community members, police officers and city officials who are responsible for this positive few months.

We want to build on what we have learned this year and begin planning for 2011. Come to the meeting and celebrate the people who helped make this a great summer in our neighborhoods. Our previous meetings on July 12th and August 2nd were devoted to putting together a Citizens Task Force for parts of Hayes Valley. This task force will help police with difficult neighborhood situations. Gail Baugh is leading the formation of the task force. She can be reached at ph. 626-6120 or Get involved—come to the September 13th meeting.
