Re: Downtown Jersey City Watch-Updates Thread

Hello everyone!

Thanks to those who were able to attend the Public Safety Event last Tuesday. There was an amazing turnout. Communipaw Avenue Block Association and Central Avenue SID were excellent in working with our Mayor and Mayoral candidates. We should be hearing more about the NJ program, Operation SEIZE FIRE, to start in Jersey City. We are also hoping that we can see more cameras. Thanks to Jan and everyone who helped out with the petition.

We were able to present helpful crime prevention tips at the Morris Canal Redevelopment Coalition last night. There was a terrific turnout including one resident who has several cameras on his property which has reduced illegal dumping and broken windows altogether. We also realized how very scared residents are to speak to the police so we are encouraging people to contact us, or speak to the Morris Canal Redevelopment leaders. As many of you know, older residents will not call the police so it is important to gather information from them and contact the police on their behalf. One can email the East District Captain and Community Relations Officer at policeeast@jcnj.org.

I need to balance our schedules so I am canceling the March 9th meeting in order to organize a much needed Blockwatch on Lafayette on Wednesday, March 11th at 8pm. At this blockwatch, residents and I will map out streetlights that need bulb replacements, vacant lots with debris, graffiti and "hot spots". We will be doing this by car and should only take 30 minutes at the most. If anyone is interested, please reply to this email.

I also want to announce that we are organizing a lunch Blockwatch on Tuesday, March 10th at 11:45am. We have been having some lunch hour problems on Monmouth again in addition to the evening problems. If you are interested, please let me know.

Thanks!

Hello everyone! Tonight, please create presence on your block by standing outside your home for 15 - 30 minutes at 8pm. Chat with a neighbor or greet people passing. Smiling at people can be the most disarming tool that one can have. Creating a presence on your block sends a message to people that "this block has eyes and ears", therefore, not a good place to commit a crime. This is the first step to a blockwatch, creating presence. Now remember, we are not giving threatening looks to people nor physically challenging them. These blockwatches are merely social gatherings. So please come out!

OR you can join one of the Blockwatches at the following locations

Whiton between Lafayette and Maple
4th Street and Monmouth
7th Street near Brunswick
Mercer near Varick Street

CANCELED! 8th Street and Coles due to illness! Sorry folks but we will have to reschedule!

I want to thank those members who have been giving great information for the police such as location, car descriptions and licenses, photos, and even names! Many of these tips were stumbled upon because people are starting to become more aware of their surroundings and people in them.
REMINDER! REMINDER! Captain's meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 24th at 7pm at Middle School#4 on Bright Street, RSVP's needed.

THANKS!

Please contact your local Jersey City Police Community Relations Officer in your district. They will put you in touch with your neighborhood organization that share concerns with you. The JCPD had created a Jersey City Community Policing group with Community leaders from each district. Unfortunately, the grant money ran out but from 2006 - 2008, we had the opportunity to work with JCPD and others on community wide issues.

I do attend meetings throughout JC and help give out tips to residents, so just email downtownjcwatch@gmail.com and let me know if you are interested.

So here's the contact info for the JCPD Community Relations:

B. Know your Community Relations Officer. Have their email address and start a dialogue with them regarding the hot spot. Then you can weekly or monthly email them your activity log to keep the problem top of mind. They can often refer you to other agencies or departments that might be helpful. They also have instructions for how to effectively call the police and other tips for keeping your neighborhood and your own home safe.
North District: P.O. David Calton 201.547.5350
West District: P.O. Cora Kerton 201.547.5450
East District: P.O. Dina Reilly 201.547.5408

Re: Residential Alarm Systems

Home away from home


ADT spoke at one of the Downtown JC Watch meetings. However, the captain mentioned that if you purchase a noise alarm that attaches to a window, the noise itself will alert neighbors. They will call the police as well as scare away the intruder. This is best if cost is a concern.

Hello everyone! Just a reminder that our next meeting is this Monday, 8/11, at 7pm at Grace Church located on Erie Street. Enter through the Red Doors on 2nd Street. The police will arrive at 7:30 pm.
Normally, in August, we see a spike in crime. So please take special care. Do not leave any valuables in the car. Please submit any concerns or calls made.

Downtown Jersey City Watch Update

Summer School - Thanks to 8th Street blockwatcher, Jan, who was out there almost every day in between her work hours from home, connecting with the crossing guards, Christo's corner store, and the school She was responsible for bringing together HPNA and the Downtown JC with Elaine Ruane, Special Assistant , Board of Education, who is now overseeing the Summer School program. As a result of the numerous fights and property damage last year, Ms. Ruane requested that additional money be spent on Crossing Guards and Security. Also, the Charter students and Public School students were separated this year into 2 locations. We also requested the East District to have police during the 8:30 and 12:30 arrival and dismissal times. As a result, there were only a handful of fights which were quickly dispersed. Unfortunately, there were some problems along Coles Street which is the path most students take towards Newark Avenue. Every day police units have an open assignment to be present at the school's dismissal and arrival times. However, these police units are pulled away from this assignment to answer other calls. Ideally, a police unit should follow the students as they exit towards Newark Ave -- this is done during the school year. This makes other students feel safe from non-students who are usually hanging around 4th and Monmouth (one of our problem areas). This escort also reduces the opportunity for property damage. Next year, we should request an additional crossing guard on 5th and Coles where traffic is a problem for pedestrians. I would also request that the additional crossing guards be one of 4 that live in that area who know many of the residents. To show our appreciation for the students and faculty who made it through the summer, we awarded 2 student prizes (selected from perfect attendance group) and 1 faculty member. They received gift bags filled with goodies donated from members. Special thanks to Troy (4th Street) for the video games & DVD's, Alfred of www.listenandlive.com for the audio books, and to Tom for the Scholastic books. I donated 2 giftcards from Target. I will be attending the September Board of Education meeting on behalf of our group.

National Night Out - was a great night! Our organization was awarded by the East District as were many of its members: Al, Jan, Jim.
We also gave a special award to the Captain and Officer Reilly for their constant efforts in helping our group and its members. These two awards were specially created by Al who photographed Grace Church's red doors for the awards and framed them. They were beautiful. We also donated a "Movie Night" basket filled with movies (Thanks Troy!) and popcorn to the East District. We also raffled off two gift bags to residents.

Graffiti - the alley between 4th and 5th and Coles and Monmouth were tagged by a group of teens on Thursday, 8/7. A call was made to the non-emergency number as well as JCIA's 24 hour number. Please reply to this email if you are aware of additional property damage.

Missing Car - car was stolen on Jersey Ave between 3rd and 4th a week ago, 8/2/08. It is a dark red 1989 Toyota Camry with a roof rack and Connecticut plates. If you see such a car gathering tickets somewhere, please reply to email. Members drove around for hours looking for red cars with roof racks and did not see one, so if you do see one, take a closer look, they are not that common.

Monmouth Street - there have been a few bicycle and vespa thefts so please keep take create your own blockwatch by hanging out in front of your home for a few minutes.

Hamilton Park Stoop Watch - Thanks to Martina for sponsoring a Stoop watch on Pavonia. It truly brings neighbors together when a group of people say hello to each other.

If you have additional concerns, please reply to this email.

Thanks!
Pam

Re: Where are all the BJ shopping carts coming from?
Home away from home
Home away from home


A few years back, I worked with the JCIA to locate these abandoned carts. The JCIA worker that responded said that he spoke with the BJ's manager who made claims that a truck would pick them up weekly. This was not true as these carts would sit for weeks collecting garbage. THe JCIA worker continued to go to BJ's and for a short while the carts were picked up.

The JCIA worker said that he really needs legislation to give him the power to fine the Business that have abandoned carts and are not picking them up. This would encourage the Businesses to purchase carts that have functional security systems (wheels lock when out of store boundaries). This would also encourage them to hire someone responsible for collecting carts from the parking place on an hourly basis like Shop RIte, thus discouraging runaway carts.

Though I understand that this may appear to be just curing the symptoms, JCIA workers and police do not believe it feasible for their time to be spent writing out tickets for cart theft. Thus a more effective way to approach this is through simple legislation that would fine.

So, what we need to do is get the JCIA to request the legislation along with neighborhood associations such as the Downtown JC Watch. It's important that a joint effort be made as suggested earlier in this thread. If anyone is interested, pls. email me at downtownjcwatch@gmail.com

Re: Downtown Jersey City Watch-Updates Thread

Home away from home


Hello all!

Just a few notes that we can all utilize.

1) Calls to 547-5477 or 911. Please call 911 if it is a crime in progress. Please describe situation with a firm statement such as "attempting to break into my home" versus a soft statement such as "trying to open my door". The softer sounds like it may be an accident like a person getting confused versus the deliberate firm statement which clearly describes a crime. Also, don't forget to log in your calls, write down the time, the operator #, and the problem. If your operator is uncooperative ask to speak with a supervisor. Please note that operators are not Police officers and what they communicate to the dispatcher can be interpreted differently. Get another neighbor to call or start a phone tree. If you call in numbers, the volume may, though not guaranteed, bump up the call to a higher priority. If you have a problem with the operator, report to our group immediately.

2) Oren Dabney, CEO of Jersey City Incinerator Authority, provided helpful information. If you have a problem with garbage pick up, illegal dumping or grafitti, please call 201.432.4645 x614 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are open. JCIA and the NJ Dept. of Transportation met on June 8th to form a task force on graffiti. If you see a public facility or a mailbox that has been defaced, please call JCIA and give them the exact location or you can email us and we will forward your message. Also, check out their website, www.jciaonline.org. If anyone has any grafitti information like the web links that I posted, please email them to us. To reduce litter by kids, JCIA is working on a buyback program on plastic bottles and cans with local stores. Illegal dumping was picked up that night per a request made at our meeting.

Re: Car being broken in?

If your car has been damaged in an attempted car robbery, you should log it into the Downtown JC Watch group or file a police report.

At the Downtown JC Watch meeting or the Captain's meeting, you will find out that a string of BMW robberies or 97 Honda robberies have been occuring lately. If it is a series of robberies, the robbers are usually caught. This too, can be found out at the meetings.

Just remember to please remove your GPS and your GPS holder from the car as well as any valuable items. Even if you remove your GPS, the holder may indicate that it is hidden in the car.

Also note where you park your car. Dark areas may be ideal for hits. You may look into requesting a street light be installed in front of your house (FOR FREE) or request that trees be trimmed.

A key car alarm, one where the owner is notified from the key chain, that someone is attempting to open the car door is a good way to "catch someone in the act."

Good luck and be safe.

Thanks Jim for the info.

The Village Association have begun productive talks with the owner. You should really meet Jim and other Village members since he also lives on that street. The Village is not a new group at all. In fact, you may find many older residents in this group. The Village is a great neighborhood that still has retained many generations. Again, you should contact them and ask when their next meeting is at Carmine's.

The Village Association has been very concerned about the Latin Lounge. You should reach out to them. Sadly, I do not have their contact info. However, they do attend the Captain's Monthly Meeting (last tuesday of every month at P.S. 4) and the Downtown JC Watch Meeting (next meeting is June 9th, Monday, at 7pm, Grace Van Vorst Church. Enter on 2nd Street). The Village could use more unified voices at these police meetings.

You can email downtownjcwatch@gmail.com and I will forward you to a contact person from the Village.

Has ANYONE been to Jersey City Medical or Christ Hospital? Could you share your satisfaction or disatisfaction?

Jersey City Hospitals and how can they attract patients with private insurance

I was told that Jersey City hospitals are trying to attract patients with private insurances.

I would like to ask the board, how have Manhattan hospitals dealt with Charity care vs. Private care or do they?

Also, what are some suggestions or problems that you have had with either Jersey City Medical or Christ Hospital?

I have my own nightmare with billing but I would be interested in hearing others.

Re: Bike Security

The Downtown JC Watch receives many reports of Bike theft and it usually happens in a series of thefts. Many of these bikes are not expensive so the owners do not report it. However, they are just pissed off that their cheap bike was stolen from front of their house.

Get a good lock as well as a cumbersome chain.

Re: Maniac drivers who speed through crosswalks (and stop signs)
Home away from home
Home away from home


At the last Harsimus Cove meeting, (www.harsimuscove.org), a Jersey City Circulation Plan 2050 Comment Card was passed out. Please contact your neighborhood group on how to get one. These will be used in the Transportation Study.

Contact Councilman Steven Fulops's office on the Transportation Study.

Many of us have voiced the same exact opinions for many years and it has been a battle. However, regular dialogue with city officials have gotten the following

Not stop signs, but stop for pedestrian signs on Brunswick and Pavonia
How fast you are going Sign-- placed on areas such as 5th Street or Columbus streets or Erie -- when asked at community meeting
Repainting and trimming of Trees by Jersey City Police AND NJ Dept. of Transportation (I met them at the Harsimus Cove meeting)
Additional Stop Sign (at the cost of the NJ Dept. of Transportation)
Additional radar equipment was acquired due to the Captain's requests to the city
Currently, we are aiming for Jersey Avenue and Wayne Street/Marin to catch speeding cars

So if you have a specific intersection, please go to your neighborhood meeting or council person or police meeting to discuss how to prevent maniac drivers

The next police meeting in the East District is the Captain's meeting on Tuesday, May 27th at P.S. #4. 7pm.
