Drug dealers and prostitutes are using the bus stop on Ferry & Grafton St as their headquarters.
As a life-long fair haven native I know drugs in our area have always been an on-going matter, no disputes here.
However I have to say in recent weeks if not months the newly established narcotics unit spends perhaps a third of their time in our area compared to other neighborhoods. Have they taken strives? Yes, I see the reports and its discussed at our monthly community meetings. (first Thursday of the month at the police sub-station). Is there much more work to be done? Of course and I look forward to continuing communicating with them to ensure it is done.
Similar situation with prostitution. The prostitution unit have completed a number of stings in our area when it comes to "johns" or the actual prostitutes who walk our streets and they will continue to organize sting operations. The problem we have as many cities have is with our judicial system. The police could enforce prostitution day in and day out however within weeks their back on the streets. The Ferry Street Block Watch see's first hand the amount of work that has gone in to organize such stings. I encourage you, if your interested to work with this active group and me. They meet the third Thursday of the month. The chair is a Mr. James Mitchell, an active homeowner in our area.
I agree with the Alderman,
I was threatened by a kid in Casanova's district last week and he, along with two other officers, responded instantly.
Though Jocelyn Square is at the edge of the district I was really impressed with the Lieutenant's response time.
It is kind of crazy, I live maybe 30 yards from the corner of Ferry and Pine. However my front door leads to a decent section of the neighborhood.
But you are correct I could not imagine living just 30 yards closer to Ferry Street. The stuff I see from my apartment and hearing shots being fired at least once or twice a week makes me very grateful of these 30 yards.
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
Voting lets your government know.
