Are You Concerned About Your Safety in Brookline?

This is an opportunity to talk about safety in town.

There have been a rash of street robberies in Brookline of recent. A Quincy man was arrested in connection to an armed robbery on Freeman Street and St. Paul Street in January. In December, three men were indicted for armed robbery near the Boston University campus in September and October.

This week, there was a robbery in which the victim was stabbed and beaten. The suspects were arrested and both Brookline Police and Boston University Police have stepped up their presence in town.

But have these robberies changed the way you go about your daily life?

There is a petition addressing some community concerns.  

Do you think the town needs more police around? What about more security cameras? Do you stay indoors at night? Are you worried about your safety in town?

The fact that the Police keep catching t he criminals is comforting. It is obvious that cameras have helped in each case. It's time to turn n Brookline's cameras 24/7.

Great job by the police working with other departments,citizens and technologies to apprehend the perpetrators. Time to consider rookies on more foot and bicycle patrols during evening hours for deterrence and even swifter response when needed ?
