Community Policing Advisory Board Kicks Off Public Awareness Campaign

February 26, 2009

On Thursday, February 26, 2009, the Mesa Police Department Superstition District Community Policing Board will kick off their new public awareness campaign.

The Mesa Police Department is working in partnership with the City of Mesa Solid Waste Division. This campaign is aimed at crime prevention and awareness throughout the city through the use of signage on solid waste trucks. The signs, purchased through grant funds, advise citizens to "Lock It or Lose It," referring to their homes and vehicles. The signs will be displayed on five trucks which will be traveling through different areas of the city.

The Superstition District Community Policing Board is made up of Mesa residents and business owners. The board works with Commander Andrew Alonzo, the Superstition District Commander, by looking at the district's crime trends or issues. When issues are identified, the board works on ways to address these problems.
