NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS  


November 20, 2019, The New Haven Independent, by Thomas Green- "Two messengers brought Westvilleans ideas for combating an uptick in neighborhood crime - community-powered ideas that don't involve more cops, more arrests, or locking up young people.  Westville neighbors heard about those two ideas - more neighborhood block watches and a neighborhood-specific restorative justice program - at an hour-and-a-half-long meeting held Tuesday night in the Edgewood School cafeteria.
The meeting was organized by Woodbridge Avenue resident Pam Fahey, and was the third such property crime-focused brainstorming session that she, neighborhood top cop Lt. Rose Dell, and Westville Alder Adam Marchand have put together so far this year.  According to  the New Haven Police Departments latest weekly CompStat report , there have been a total of 543 property crimes committed in the Westville/West Hills policing district since Jan. 1. Those include burglaries, motor vehicle thefts, and larcenies from vehicles, and represent a 19.3 percent increase over this same time last year..." Click HERE to comment and read full article.
