2nd Precinct Advisory Council Meeting – November 18th – Robberies in Southeast

This was emailed out via Gov Delivery to announce 2PAC’s last meeting. 

Join us for our monthly 2nd Precinct Advisory Council meeting at 6pm, on November 18th in Southeast Minneapolis, at University Lutheran Church of Hope.

November 11th, our regular meeting is a holiday so we changed to date to Novmber 18th, at 6pm.  This will be a special Southeast Minneapolis focused meeting.  We will meet at University Lutheran Church of Hope, Heritage Hall, 601 13th Ave SE.  Parking is available on the church grounds.

Topic – Robberies in 2nd Precinct
Robberies have become quite an issue in Southeast Minneapolis in the last few months. While there may be a similar number of robberies this year as last year, these robberies are receiving more attention due to the use of guns and the violence of some of these robberies.

Inspector Kathy Waite and Crime Prevention Specialists Nick Juarez and Susan Webb will be present to review recent events, discuss personal safety advice, and listen to community concerns.  We will also hope to listen to other SE Minneapolis issues as well.

Here are some of the news stories.

Elections – nominations for Board
The 2nd Precinct Advisory  Council has a small, volunteer board that supports the organization, outside of our regular meetings.  Southeast Neighborhoods are currently under-represented on the 2nd Precint Advisory Council and on the 2PAC board.   Several SE and NE Neighborhoods have chosen not to send representatives to these community meetings with the 2nd Precinct over the last year, leaving their residents and stakeholders without a voice on crime issues.

We are collecting nominations for our nominating committee.  If you have a vision to reduce crime and work with a team to support MPD’s efforts to protect us, here is your opportunity.  Email Dan Scoggins, dan.scoggins@yahoo.com.  Our elections are in December.

Open to the Public!
The 2nd Precinct Advisory Council meetings are open to the public.  Join us if you are a resident, business owner, or other stakeholder in the 2nd Precinct.  We welcome your participation and support.
