Question regarding robberies in the Willows

From: domainremoved <Chris>

Hello City Council Members- happy new year, and thank you for your service
to our community.

My name is Chris Finan and I live at 501 Concord Drive in the Willows.
We've had at least half a dozen robberies within several blocks of my home
in the past eight weeks, and there have been two on my street alone in the
past month. I've reached out to the police department to find out what
more is being done - I know they made two arrests last month, but the
robberies have continued - and what I can do to protect my home, but I have
not yet heard back.

My wife and I are veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, and it's deeply
unsettling for us to feel a sense of vulnerability in our home, when we
experienced so much abroad. That's not how we want to live and raise our
family. I believe we as a community should be able to find a solution to
ensure a sense of security.

I recognize that there are many challenges facing our community and the
city has finite resources, but there has to be more we can do to prevent
these break-ins.

Please let me know if the City Council has any initiatives underway to
address this problem. I am ready to help to be part of the solution.

Thank you,

Chris Finan
