Within the past month, we have seen two residential break-ins on the 400 block of Spencer Road (one during the day while the resident was at work, and one at a different residence at night when the residents were home), along with some vandalism (a resident had their mailbox completely smashed and destroyed one night).
Officer Williamson from the Ithaca Police Department has offered to meet with our community to share experiences and to share ideas. He has reserved the northeast study room (a.k.a. the “Large Study Room”) at the Tompkins County Public Library this Saturday at 10am to meet. Any neighborhood residents, property owners, or other concerned parties are invited to attend. Community members from South Hill are also invited to attend due to a shared increase in residential crime during the past month.
This is a good opportunity to ask questions from an IPD officer about residential crime, home security, and neighborhood safety. Ward alderpersons Cynthia Brock and George McGonigal will also be present.
If you would like to reach out to Officer Williamson separately regarding a question or concern, he can be reached at: JWilliamson@cityofithaca.org or at: (607) 216-3221.
