Neighborhood Watch – Rose Acres – Beat 1

Rose Acres/Beat 1 includes streets in the North West quadrant of our city in the 2500 block of Marshall, Newland, Otis St. Otis Ct. and Pierce Streets for our Edgewater Police Beat System and Neighborhood Watch Program.

The Edgewater Police Department needs your help in making your neighborhood safer! The city has been divided into 10 different Beats or Neighborhood Watch Areas with 4-5 Streets within each area. As you can see with the above example of our Rose Acres Neighborhood, each Beat has an assigned Edgewater Police Officer and we are working diligently to identify Block Captains from each street within each area from which our officers can communicate with more detailed information about your neighborhood. We will continue to work diligently to provide the general statistics of crime city wide to all residents.

Nextdoor and Neighborhood Watch are Growing!

Our tremendous volunteer, Lorenzo Rendon has done an exceptional job in his first year as Neighborhood Watch Coordinator. Lorenzo has spoken to many of you and is arranging block meetings for this spring. As we begin to identify and sign our Neighborhood Watch Blocks, we will also begin the process of comparing crime statistics in Watch Blocks compared to all other blocks. The NW program has historically been extremely successful in deterring crime, and I’m certain it will do the same for Edgewater. Our Edgewater Police Department Volunteers are researching methods to increase our Neighborhood Watch participation and participation in Nextdoor Edgewater. Both of these programs allow us to communicate more efficiently with residents for civic events and crime prevention purposes. Please consider inviting your neighbors to participate in Nextdoor Edgewater and contacting our Neighborhood Watch Coordinator Lorenzo – volunteers@edgewaterpd.com  to get more information on making your neighborhood safer.

Thank You Notes from Neighbors – Kudo’s

A citizen commendation will be presented to Edgewater Neighbor Michael Rosado at the Council Meeting on May 4th for his courage, bravery, compassion and care while assisting Officer Palmer who was alone at 2:35 AM fighting with a violent DUI offender.

I would like to take this time to thank Officer Robenalt for helping take care of a situation where the tenants who live below me kept harassing my family and me.

We would walk into our apartment and the neighbors would pound on their ceiling, their walls, scream profanity which scared my two young sons. Their constant cursing at us when our children were there was really taking a big toll on us, especially as parents. We called the police and Officer Robenalt came by to talk to us. Officer Robenalt really listened to what I told him was going on as this is constant and he went and talked with the two neighbors downstairs and in a few days of the last incident, is seems to be a lot better. Officer Robenalt is a true professional with a very nice side to him. Thank you.

Thank you to our outstanding police volunteers, Frank Kyper, Lorenzo Rendon, Dave Suter, and Joel Newton for the countless hours they are contributing to making our community and city a safer place to live, work and play! Chief Mackey

Neighbor’s notes and “Kudo’s” are placed in the lobby of the police station and placed in the respective officer’s personnel files – thanks for sharing!
