President’s Report – Scott Dwyer:
Reviewed February 2017 meeting minutes.
There’s some concern with breaking & entering incidents on the North Side. Officer Healey supplied a police call log report for the month of February. The BPD received 345 calls in the month of February within the area of 54 Main Street to the Avon Line. Association reviewed the calls specifically in the 300-700 block of N. Main St. and there were 3 incidents.
TE Corcoran Plumbing building has been broken into several times and products have been stolen. It was concluded that the property was not properly secured. The property has since been properly secured and surveillance equipment installed.
GUEST SPEAKER: Sgt. Will Schliemann (Brockton Police)
Sgt. Schliemann was asked to be the liaison of the Brockton Police Department to the Board of Health. Sergeant spoke of a Board of Health code allowing no more than to have one (1) inoperable car on property. There is currently a backlog of 150 properties to check on code enforcement, while also fulfilling his Sergeant duties, thus is quite tough to manage both.
The idea, says Sgt. Schliemann, is to come in once a month for four (4) hours and tow cars, that do not abide by the code, for the Board of Health. In the past, Code Enforcement was an actual position in BPD but that position is no longer available. Duties have been shifted to detectives for licensing issues, and officers for code enforcement.
INVITED GUESTS: Owners of Salon V (756 N Main St.)
2016 was the worst year for break-ins at their store. On November 3, 2016, two guys came in with masks on. The property has interior and exterior cameras and is alarmed. This past Monday, February 27, there was an attempted break-in. The owners normally put out mannequins to display her merchandise and it was stolen after only two hours. This has never been an issue before in the past.
Meeting Adjourned at 7:00pm.
