Westland police department slates series of community meetings
Working in partnership with neighborhood residents, the Westland Police Department will identify and resolve specific quality of life problems or concerns, police officials said.
“Our police department kicked off the Neighborhood Safety Program in June at Stottlemyer Park and we had a lot of great discussion and engagement from residents in the surrounding area,” commented Mayor William R. Wild. “Recognizing that every neighborhood has different concerns and public safety needs, we now move to tackle the concerns in other areas of the community.”
With the cooperation of Westland residents, the Westland Police Department will be able to identify neighborhood traffic concerns; neighbor disputes; vandalism; potential drugs; thefts and safety concerns. Police officers will provide neighborhood specific crime statistics and safety tips, officials said.
The next neighborhood safety meeting will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 17 at Voss Park with a specific focus being on the neighborhoods south of Cherry Hill to Palmer and from Venoy east to Henry Ruff. Voss Park is located at 30600 Palmer Road.
An additional meeting will take place at 10 a.m. July 31 at Curtis Woods Park with a specific focus on the neighborhoods south of Cherry Hill to Palmer and from Newburgh East to Wayne Road. Curtis Woods Park is located at 36400 Palmer Road.
Wild, Police Chief Jeff Jedrusik and members of the Westland Community Police Team will be in attendance for both of these meetings.
There will be regular meetings scheduled throughout the year in order to specifically focus individually on Westland neighborhoods, Wild said.
