APD Foothills news: January 28, 2014 - New FH Lt, How to Book an Officer at Your Next Meeting, Park Volunteers, Parks Mgmt Speakers Available

Received from APD today:

Dear Foothills Area Command Community Leaders,

Here is some helpful information for you to share with your NA/HOA members and Neighborhood Watch groups:

How to Book a Foothills Representative at Your Group’s Community Meeting:
• We are happy to send a Foothills representative to community meetings, but must limit this to annual general membership meetings.
• If you would like to have one of us at a meeting, contact the Crime Prevention Specialist Jill Garcia (contact information below).
• We need a minimum advance notice of 2 weeks prior to the meeting in order to fulfill your request.
• Please remember, we make every possible effort to be at as many community meetings as we can, but we are dependent upon dispatched calls for service in the field. Our officers must respond to emergencies and may have to leave suddenly if there is a significant event occurring in the field during the meeting. For a little reassurance on this point, I have been here for a little over 2 years and can’t recall this happening at any meetings where I have been present with officers.

Please welcome Lieutenant Douglas Walton to the Foothills Area Command leadership team:
• Lt. Douglas Walton has joined our leadership team and is the Watch 1 Commander for the graveyard teams (10:00 pm to 8:00 am shift).
• You can reach Lt. Walton by calling 332-5240.

City of Albuquerque Parks Management Volunteer Programs: Hand in Hand with Crime Prevention Concepts!
• I spoke with Michelle Herrera of the City’s Parks Management Department recently and they are always seeking volunteers to be ‘eyes and ears’ for the city’s parks.
• If you are a frequent walker, jogger, cyclist, dog walker in your local park, then you already know what normal behavior is for your park and neighborhood.
• Please be willing to call 242-COPS (2677) from a safe place if you see suspicious activity or a crime has occurred. Call from a place where you feel safe; do not follow, film or confront others.
• If you see a crime in progress, call 911.
• If you see graffiti, trash dumping, damaged park benches or play equipment or trash receptacles, etc. call 311 and report that to the Citizens Contact Center.
• Why not help our Parks Management Department and serve as a park volunteer if you are already visiting your neighborhood park on a frequent basis?
• For more information about becoming a Park Volunteer contact Malia Tafoya, Parks Management Volunteer Coordinator at 857- 8657.
• Parks Management is happy to provide staff to speak at community meetings about issues concerning parks, volunteer programs, etc. Please contact them directly via 311 or speak to Malia Tafoya at 857-8657.
