  1. New Business
    1. POP Officer Recognition by the Steering Committee
      Bonnie Domeny stated that the Problem Oriented Policing (POP) officer has been doing a lot of work in our community.  For example, he is working on a problem house on Alcosta.  He wants letters from neighbors about how the activities at the house affect them.  He wants to take these letters to the District Attorney’s (DA) office, to encourage the DA to bring legal action.
