Re: Enforcement Issues

From: domainremoved <Jennifer>

I'm writing to follow up on the email below that I sent on October 16th
requesting:

1. Increased enforcement at areas with kid endangerment ongoing violations,
and;
2. A meeting with key stakeholders to discuss enforcement issues related to
Safe Routes.

Many parents (and community members) are coming to Parents for Safe Routes
with enforcement requests/concerns. We would like to discuss with law
enforcement the best way to channel this information to you, and what
community members can expect in regards to a response/follow-up.

Thank you for your time,
Jen
