Hoboken Police seek residents feedback

9/9/2009:

To make our community stronger and safer

Everyone has their opinions of the Hoboken Police Department. Regardless of how you feel, one portion of the HPD deserves special mention – and that’s the Community Policing Bureau, and the positive things they’re trying to do (we’ll be talking about them more in the coming months…)

One such example is a new Police/Community Survey they’ve created. I’ve spoken with both Sgt. James Marnell and Lt. Ken Ferrante about it, and this is what they say:

“The Hoboken Police Department has developed a Police/Community Survey which we are now in the process of distributing to Hoboken residents. The survey requests opinions and concerns regarding issues of crime, safety, quality of life, general impression of the H.P.D. as well as demographic information. Our intention is to identify the most pressing concerns from the perspective of City residents, develop plans to address these concerns, after review and authorization of Chief Anthony P. Falco, implement the plans and finally to evaluate the results. Given that Hoboken currently has approximately 50,000 residents, we hope to receive (at least) 1,000 completed surveys before analyzing the data.”

Contains about 30 questions.

Congrats to Chief Falco and the new initiative push to improve safety in our City. The Acting Mayor should be pleased in this lst step in improving our overall safety. Next phases should be fire safety education and disaster training. At the last cc meeting, Mayor Zimmer has made our fellow council members aware of emergency management training that is available over the internet. Again, a good friend of mine has made these suggestions, as well as others, to the former transition team and to our Acting Mayor. I am glad to see that proper action is being taken. The public of Hoboken deserves the best “stuff’. Thanks, realstuff

i know somehow people will find a way to complain about this survey but at least they are making an effort.

And maybe its just wishful thinking but i do believe that there has been an increased presence of squad cars passing through the 5th & Adams area. That’s all i ever asked. Just do a patrol at night back there. Thanks HPD
