Neighborhood Officer Assignments
The below listed officers will be assigned to the listed neighborhoods, and should be contacted for any non-emergency issues or neighborhood meetings that should arise. These officers will work problems directly, or touch base with whomever has the expertise to resolve the issue. As you pass this information along to your neighbors, please be reminded that the officers might not be working the sift when you email an issue, might work overnight, or might have days off other than weekends. We separated the neighborhoods by shifts that we felt could best deal with the issues we are presently seeing in your neighborhood. Please be patient with the officer in allowing them enough time to respond to the non-emergency issue.
