    CITIZEN ALERT NETWORK EXPANDS CITY WIDE

    The Boston Police Department is pleased to announce that it has expanded, Citizen Observer, the Boston Police Alert Network, to include all 11 Districts. Initially released as a pilot in three districts, C-6 (South Boston), C-11 (Dorchester), and B-2 (Roxbury), Citizen Observer has proven to be an effective communication tool for the Boston Police.
    Acting Boston Police Commissioner Albert E. Goslin stated, “Good communication between law enforcement and the community is an essential element to keeping our city safe.” Commissioner Goslin added, “I am so pleased to be able to expand this public safety service to neighborhoods across the city. I urge all community members to join the Citizen Alert Network to receive important public safety information and timely news alerts.”

    The Alert Network allows police to instantly update registered users about crime, emergencies and other important information. Information on fugitives, missing persons and unsolved cases is also provided on alerts. There will also be a “Submit a Tip” feature on alerts allowing people to directly reply to police with tips and other information.
    Residents need to register online to receive these alerts. People can register at www.CitizenObserver.com and click on the Sign Up Now link. This service offers four types of alerts:
    · Citizen Alerts – informs all registered users of a public safety concerns. Police will provide descriptions of incidents, actions taken and photographs when possible. Alerts will be delivered via e-mail and text messages;
    · Business Alerts – targeted to specific business types, so businesses will receive information relevant to their business. Alerts will be delivered via fax, e-mail and text messages;
    · Case Alerts – Police will automatically send information about open cases to all registered users. Alerts will be delivered via e-mail and text messages;
    · Neighborhood Watch Group Alerts – Police will send targeted alerts to specific neighborhoods with information about crimes in the immediate area. Alerts will be delivered via e-mail and text message.
    In September, the BPD asked the public for their feedback on the service via an online survey and the results showed the public’s support. When asked which alerts are most important, the following were the top five in order: House Break-In, Mugging, Sexual Assaults, Drug Dealing, and Homicide.
    Actual Comments from Survey:
    · I think it's good to know what is going on in the community. I've found the service to be very worthwhile.
    · It is extremely helpful to transmit accurate and useful information from the source on a timely basis. I have children that range in age from 6 to 14 years of age. These alerts provide me with information that could possibly help my kids from being in the wrong place at the wrong time. If nothing else these alerts help me to be aware of situations that I may not have known about at all.
    · It lets you know what is going on around you so you can take appropriate measures. It also makes you feel more connected with the police department.

    Survey Requests and feedback:

    · I get alerts for other communities other than mine in South Boston. I'm not really concerned with these so if you could tailor it so that only alerts for your area are received that would be great.
    BPD RESPONSE - Functionality has been built in to send to Alerts to specific zip codes. Those living and working in South Boston can expect to only receive alerts specific for Zip Codes in South Boston. Alerts may be sent citywide when a citywide response is necessary.
    · Have more targeted areas that one could sign up for. There should be a way to sign up for specific neighborhoods like the South End.
    BPD RESPONSE - Citizen Observer is now available in all districts.
    · Post the numbers of ways to report drug dealings and other problems.

    INFORMATION ADVISORY

    Eight Districts Report Decline in Theft from Motor Vehicle
    Four Districts Report Increase

    From January 1, 2006 to November 14, 2006, statistics indicate that 8 Boston Police Districts are reporting a decline in the number of Larceny From a Motor Vehicle. However, four districts (A1, B2, D4 and D14) have reported an increase in the number of thefts from motor vehicles. This has resulted in a 3% increase of motor vehicle break-ins.
    · The largest decrease occurred in E-5 (West Roxbury), which reports a 48% decrease.
    · The second largest decrease was reported in E-18 (Jamaica Plain), stats indicated a 29% decrease.
    · A7 (East Boston) reports a 26% decrease
    · A15 (Charlestown) reports a 3% decrease
    · B3 (Mattapan, Dorchester) reports a 16% decrease
    · C6 (South Boston) reports an 11% decrease
    · C11 (Dorchester) reports a 12% decrease
    · E13 (Jamaica Plain) reports a 14% decrease
    As stated above, four districts reported an increase in the number of thefts from motor vehicles. They include:
    · District A-1 (Downtown) reported a 36% increase
    · District B-2 (Roxbury/Mission Hill) reported a 28% increase
    · District D- 4 (South End/ Back Bay) indicated a19% increase
    · District D-14 (Brighton/Allston) showed a 22% increase
    The Boston Police would like to take this opportunity to remind residents that motor vehicle breaks are among the most easily preventable of crimes. They are typically crimes of opportunity, committed by thieves who look for valuables left unattended. Particularly as we approach the holiday season, taking a few simple steps can often discourage these thieves. Here’s how you can protect yourself against motor vehicle breaks.
    DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR WHERE OTHERS CAN SEE THEM. Valuable items, such as your laptop, iPod, etc. should never be left in the front or back seat of your vehicle. Always take your valuables with you, or move them into the trunk.

    · Lock your doors and windows. Even if your window is only slightly open, it makes your car an easier target for thieves. A thief will insert a wire into a slightly open window to pop up the door lock.
    · Replace your standard door lock buttons with tapered ones. Tapered door lock buttons make it more difficult for a thief to hook a wire or device onto the door lock button to pop it open.
    · Invest in an anti-theft device. When you buy a new or used car, checking to see if it has an anti-theft device is as important as checking the engine. If there isn't one, you should have one installed.
    If you observe any unusual activity or observe a car theft or a break-in, call 911.

    FIVE PEOPLE ARRESTED, $1M WORTH OF COCAINE SEIZED AS PART OF SIX-MONTH INVESTIGATION

    BOSTON -- Five people were arrested last night and 15 kilograms of cocaine seized as part of a six-month investigation by State Police assigned to Attorney General Tom Reilly's Office with assistance from Boston Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
    State Police assigned to the Attorney General's Office with assistance from Boston Police and the DEA executed a search warrant last night at a residence at 18 Monson Street in Mattapan. Five people, four men and one woman, were arrested and 15 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The arrests and seizure follow a six-month investigation utilizing both electronic and physical surveillance that focused on a major cocaine trafficking operation in and around Boston. The people arrested last night were allegedly running a wholesale and retail distribution operation in which they allegedly sold both large quantities of cocaine and also broke it down into smaller amounts.
    Over the last few days State Police developed information about a large shipment being moved by car from Georgia coming north. Today State Police investigators tracked that shipment to a location in Mattapan. It was moved from there to the location at 18 Monson Street late yesterday afternoon where five individuals were placed under arrest. A search of the residence yielded 13 individual kilogram bricks of cocaine concealed in a compartment underneath a floor in the second floor of house. Another kilogram was found in a bedroom, and the 15th kilogram, which was being "cooked" into crack cocaine, was found in the cellar. The cocaine seized today has an estimated street value of more than $1 million.
    State Police also seized a handgun at the first location in Mattapan.
    The five people are scheduled to be arraigned this morning in Dorchester District Court on trafficking and conspiracy charges, and all face mandatory 15-year sentences.
    The investigation is ongoing.

    Students Help Police Promote Safe Holiday Driving

    [IMG]
    Yesterday, students at Monument High School in South Boston helped police remind everyone using our roadways this holiday weekend to drive safely and buckle up. Eight people were killed on Massachusetts roadways during the four-day Thanksgiving holiday period in 2005. In an effort prevent a repeat of those numbers this weekend, the students and police gathered at the school to spread the message that Buckling up is quick and easy, as well as state law.
    The event highlighted several public safety efforts to keep holiday travelers safer, including a two-week “Click It or Ticket” Mobilization that runs through November 26th.
    In a “Quick-Click-Buckle-Up Challenge,” teams of four Monument High School students competed to be the fastest at buckling up in all four seating positions of a car.

    Transcript from 11/27 Media Availability

    Below is a transcript of today's Q and A with Captain William Evans, Commander of District 4 (South End and Back Bay) regarding the increased Boston Police patrols on Newbury street.
    QUESTION ONE: If I could ask you, sir, when those patrols start, and could you just give us an idea a little bit of the numbers in terms of if there's 1 or 2 extra officers per tour? ANSWER: Newbury Street we’ve had covered for some time, we’ve had officers full time on Newbury. With the holidays we’ve increased the patrols. Double, sometimes triple, just because we do that every year. I think anywhere you look, the shopping areas around the city - Mayor Menino, the Police Commissioner have put extra patrols out there. You see them at Downtown Crossing, you'll see them on Newbury St, and you’ll see them on Boylston St.
    We realize that people want to see the officers out there, realize that shopliftings do go up, so we do proactively put patrols out there. Anywhere there’s a busy shopping area, you’ll see an increase in patrols. It’s not a reaction to an increase in crime, its done every year.
    QUESTION TWO: Captain, can you give us some indication if you’ve had communication with the business owners on Newbury St, are they expressing any concerns about an increase in activity

    ANSWER: No, they really haven’t; I want to say about a month or two, we did have a rash of larcenies, and we had a robbery or two at the sunglass place down there, but we’ve proactively reached out to them. I know myself and Councilor Ross walked up and down Newbury St. about a month ago, reassuring all the businesses that, you know, we have a continued presence down there. We have a day walking officer, we have a night walking officer, so I think there’s this perception out there that things have been getting worse down there, but its just not true, you know.
    We’re seeing the statistics, and the shopkeepers for the most part were very happy. The night walking officer was something that we put into effect about 2 months ago, and they were thrilled that they had both day and nite coverage down there. They seem to be very happy.
    QUESTION THREE: Is there anything that you think the store owners themselves can do to try and perhaps protect themselves against this kind of thing?

    ANSWER Well, I think, again, with the holiday season, it’s a busy time, the stores are more crowded, I think they proactively have to keep an eye on who’s coming into their store, and if there’s any hint that maybe they’re up to no good reach out, call 911. I think I stressed that when I met with them a month ago, that if they see someone come into the store that just doesn’t fit, don't hesitate to call us. I mean, obviously I think having an extra sales person or 2 might help, because unfortunately a lot of shops down there, I think hire some young females to work the shop. Having, maybe, 1 or 2 store clerks won’t hurt. ... (unable to be heard) So there's some things they can do more.
    QUESTION FOUR: So, the 4 commercial burglaries and 1 robbery that occurred: That’s not any sort of up tick at all, compared to the 2 months prior to that?
    ANSWER No. In fact, I would say that things have calmed down. I think we had a little bit of a robbery pattern back in October, September, when we had a few stores that –actually, what happened was there was a shoplifting, basically, where the employee confronted the shoplifter and they might have gotten pushed- that turned it into a robbery. But we’ve had no serious incidents down there for the most part where, you know, it’s just a matter of shoplifting cases gone bad and it turns into a robbery. I would say over the last month or two, our statistics show things have gotten quieter.
    QUESTION FIVE: Captain- can you confirm that these new patrols have already started? We were down on Newbury St. for about 3 hours today, saw one officer. Is it more beefed up at nite? Has it already started? Is it being phased in?

    ANSWER: We have an officer down there - I don’t want to give the times, but down there full time. They should be down there and we have 2 pretty much covering the length of Newbury St. On days, on 1st halfs, so they should be out there. Newbury St.’s very busy, they’re dealing with a lot of issues down there, they’re taking reports, they’re tagging vehicles, so it's understandable that you're not going to see them all the time. They’re in and out of the stores, they’re visiting the merchants, so, you know, we try to make them as visible as possible. That being said, you’re not going to see them all the time
    QUESTION SIX: Is the night patrol permanent?
    ANSWER: Yes.

    BOSTON POLICE INCREASE PATROLS ON NEWBURY STREET

    Today Boston Police announce that they have increased patrols to Newbury Street and the surrounding areas as a proactive public safety measure throughout the busy holiday season.

    We have removed the posting from last night titled “Confirmed Shooting at Talbot Avenue and Washington Street”

    as well as several updates to that posting. As further information came in, the location of the shooting changed several times. Rather than post several changing and contradictory pieces of information, we have decided to remove the outdated postings and wait until all information is confirmed. This is often the case in shooting incidents, in which initial reports are often unconfirmed and subject to change.

    Inside a West Roxbury Community Meeting

    A look at a recent West Roxbury Community Meeting. Captain Hasson of E-5 met with residents to discuss ways to protect themselves against break-ins.
    "Hasson, who was joined by Deputy Superintendent Darrin Greeley of the BPD’s Bureau of Field Services, also urged residents to call 911 if they see anything suspicious or even if they feel unsettled…. …The key to calling 911, according to the BPD, is to either call from a home phone or to call 617-343-4911 from a cell phone to reach Boston Police. If not, cell phone users risk having their call routed to the State Police, which may delay response time.
    In addition to not hesitating to call 911, Greeley emphasized the importance of neighbors watching over each other.
    "You can make a difference in your neighborhood. We have to watch out for one another, take that extra minute," advised Greeley." Via Townonline.com
