A Few Things to Report!

     We looked at crime, per capita, a few blog posts ago, and one of the neighborhoods high up on the list is taking action!

     Dorsey Riverbend, who had the third worst crime rate per capita in 2011, is a small neighborhood just north of Broward Boulevard and south of Sistrunk Boulevard.. The total Part I Crimes for 2011 was 176, breaking down like this –

                                          48 Robberies
                                          66 Burglaries
                                          35 Car break-ins
                                          18 Cars stolen

     The 2012 statistics are marginally better, down 1%. And, interestingly, the Chief of Police, Frank Adderley, lives in the neighborhood!

                                         

     Here is a flyer about Dorsey Riverbend’s anti-crime march, Friday, October 19th. I’ll be there! Expect to see Commissioner Dubose, the Police Chief, and Mayor Seiler as well.

     And, a quick update on the School Bus invasion in the Middle River Terrace neighborhood.

                   
     
      Neighborhood President, Laura Croscenco, says the situation is improved, as the Broward School Transportation Chief Jerry Graziose implemented a better plan, and School Board member Maureen Dinnen has been working hard to get the buses out of the neighborhood, although she is out of office on November 19!

     The hope is that the busses will leave the neighborhood altogether within two weeks.
