RP was there!

Thanks for the thanks!

  • Rose Park recognized for its support of Power 4 Youth. Received acknowledgement at annual graduation dinner! Let Power 4 Youth know you are interested in being a mentor at

  • Rose Park attended recent follow-up of City’s Citizen’s Police Academy with demo of canine and helicopter units. FYI – we frequently wonder why the helicopters fly so low. Well one reason is that we have general aviation space above us, so the helicopters need to stay below a certain altitude. Next community workshops will be “WhydUStoppedMe” with core set of facilitators to work on problematic police encounters. Want to know more? better yet check out their facebook page



Things that go bump in the summer

In spite of the marine layer, the season of summer is upon us. Longer days, vacations, children out of school, time for picnics and parties. Here are some pretty important considerations.

You’d like to enjoy your backyard – so remember that late night parties effect others. Be considerate. Remember to turn the volume down. We all face the upcoming 4th of July illegal fireworks phenomenon, many with dread. So, let’s commiserate together by being thoughtful about the noise we can control.

And weirdly there is more trash in the summer….bbq’s and cases of adult beverages, take out deli food pile up and overflow those well used brown & purple trash cans. Again, you may be tired after your fun event but properly storing trash within the bin and placing the bin away from the street or alley path keeps these areas safe.

That’s it for now on the safety beat!
