County Executive Tom Gordon has directed the New Castle County Department of Public Safety and the Office of Community Governing to hold regional community meetings that discuss the County’s predictive policing, storm preparation, code enforcement and constituent services.
For the convenience of New Castle County citizens, five meetings have been scheduled throughout various parts of the County. Civic groups and maintenance corporations, from each major area, may attend these regional meetings to learn about valuable governmental functions and services.
“We want people to know what resources are available to them in times of emergency or a crisis, not to mention the constituent services of which they can avail themselves,” County Executive Gordon said. “We also want them to know how the New Castle County Police Division has used state-of-the-art technology to predict where crime would occur, thereby reducing, by double digits, the amount of crime in the County.”
County Executive Gordon, Director of Public Safety Joseph Bryant Jr. and Executive Assistant Bill Shahan, of the Office of Community Governing, are scheduled to give remarks at each meeting. County staff will also speak about the benefits of the County’s participation in the “Smart911” program, as well as civil penalties caused by code violations.
All meetings are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., and end at 8 p.m. The dates and locations are:
Monday, Sept. 23 (West NCC), Hockessin PAL Center, 7259 Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, DEMonday, Sept. 30 (Bear-Glasgow), The Word of Life Christian Center, 854 Old Baltimore Pike, Newark, DEWednesday, October 2 (Middletown), Appoquinimink Library, 51 North Broad Street, Middletown, DE Thursday, October 3 (New Castle), Garfield Park PAL, 6 Karlyn Drive, New Castle, DEWednesday, October 16 (North), Brandywine Hundred, Talleyville Fire Co, 3919 Concord Pike Wilmington, DE
