Community Meeting on Public Safety, Aug 15, 6:30p

A Community Meeting Regarding the Recent Shootings in Greenfield has been set for Wednesday, August 15, at 6:30 p.m.

 

Thank you to the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Zone 4 Commander Herrmann and Zone 4 officers for attending our meeting last night concerning the recent incidents that happened over the weekend in and around Greenfield.

The Commander gave a very detailed description of these events, which were isolated incidents for Greenfield, which is historically a low-crime area. However, he noted that there will be an increased police presence in the neighborhood for the coming future, which will include additional patrols.

We also have a date, time, and location set for a community meeting about these events.

WHEN: Wednesday, August 15, at 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: St. Rosalia Academy, Cafeteria.

We want to especially thank Father Joe for accommodating this meeting and helping us secure this space with such short notice.

Further, we want to thank all of our neighbors: We live, work, and play in an incredibly great neighborhood, and incidents like this will not change that and will not keep Greenfield down.

Public Safety Concerns: Recent Shootings

UPDATE:  6 August 2018 at 2p.  The community meeting (formerly listed as Wed 8/8) is being rescheduled. See below. 

From GCA Board and Councilman O’Connor:

Dear Greenfield residents,

We wanted to clarify meetings that will be occurring in the next few weeks.

The Board of the Greenfield Community Association (GCA) and Councilman O’Connor are meeting with Pittsburgh Zone 4 Police Commander Daniel Herman tonight, Monday August 6.

At this meeting they’ll discuss the recent shootings in the neighborhood and nearby areas and select a date for a community meeting that’ll be open to the public. The meeting that was scheduled for Wednesday August 8 was the GCA’s already-scheduled Public Safety Committee meeting. In light of these recent events, that Public Safety Committee has been cancelled and will be combined with the larger community meeting, the details of which will be announced soon. As soon as a date, time and location is selected the public will be informed.

Thank you for your interest in ensuring that our community remains safe and secure.

— GCA Board and Councilman O’Connor
