Report from NW Patrol Division quarterly meeting

At least three Broadmoor residents attended last night's meeting with the Northwest Patrol Division. As always, it was very informative and gave residents the opportunity to ask questions of the Police.

Our neighbors to the north in Briarwood always post excellent reports of Nortwest Patrol Division quarterly meetings. Here's the report from last night's meeting:

The officers repeatedly stressed that we are responsible for observing what is going on around us and reporting it. Please call 911 any time you are suspicious about something going on.
