Police Panel/Public Safety Committee

12/10/2014 - 6:00pm

Because our regular last-Wednesday-of-the-month meetings in November and December fall on holidays, we will have a combined November/December meeting on Wednesday, December 10th, still from 6-7 pm in the Hale Chapel of The First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street.  In January we will resume our regular last-Wednesday schedule.

Officials from the Boston Transportation Department will not be attending again until perhaps January, when they have something to report from their traffic signal retiming project.  Officials from the Boston Police Department will be attending on the 10th to discuss recent crimes in the Back Bay and ways to avoid them.  Also, we have been hearing more about pedestrian safety threats from bicyclists (running red lights and stop signs, etc.).   If you have experiences to report, solutions to propose, or if you just want to hear or join the discussion, you are welcome to attend.

Chair, Public Safety Committee
