There appears to be an increase in violent street crime in our Neighborhood, yet, there is no obvious routine nightly walking or biking Police patrols. Please contact the Civic Association today and ask them to request immediate action from our Police Department.

there needs to be foot or bike patrol to have a better view of the problems. the only thing these savages will respond to is increased police presence. they are feeling brave for a reason, not enough police! when street crime is happening during the day and early evening it can only mean that the criminals are too comfortable in the neighborhood.

I agree with increasing police presence on foot and bike. It's all very frightening. I used to feel safe in this neighborhood and lately I have really begun to worry about my families safety. With the increasing gang graffiti around the city throughout the past year the crime has followed, as expected. I hope something will be done before it gets worse. Beacon Hill may no longer be a safe place for my family if violent crime like this continues.
