The 8th District Police successfully held its first Police Service Area meetings for all three zones Wednesday.
Approximately 25 members who live in PSA zone 1 met with Lt. Mullin at Cottage Green. The goal of the PSAs is to create a localized forum for residents to discuss issues in their immediate neighborhood, and to create a coordinated response to crime as a result of this partnership between the police and the community.
The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, Feb 15.
