Sheriff holds Community Crime Watch meeting

SGT. HALL of the Sheriff’s office presents the main talk to the audience, about a Home Security Review to deter crimes in the neighborhood. Seated behind Hall are the organizers of the Crime Watch event, Julie Baer and David Baer.

NORTH SHORE – Concerned about the incidents of crime in their neighborhood, and wanting more interaction with the local Sheriff ’s office, two private citizens took it upon themselves to organize a night of talks and exhibits with the Deputies of the Sheriff ’s office, last Monday night at the North Shore Rotary Pavilion on Wallisville, beside the Courthouse Annex.

Julie and David Baer, and over 100 residents of various neighborhoods, from Highlands to North Shore to Galena Park showed up at the meeting, and the Sheriff provided about 50 officers, 15 Explorers, and major equipment displays to help explain the department’s capabilities.

Deputy Hall started the series of talks, outlining various techniques to improve security and safety from crime, including a Home Security Review, a Coffee with the Cops program, and free Gun Locks that were distributed that evening. Hall explained that the department will visit your home on request, and conduct the safety review, which will include lighting, shrubbery, alarms, and door and window locks. He explained these are the first line of defense against being a crime victim. He explained that he knows the North Shore area very well, growing up their and always being assigned to the area. When not pursuing crimes, he is also busy with nuisance abatement assignments, but he cautioned that these cases take time to prosecute and see areas cleaned up.

The next speaker was Capt. Joel Inocencio, the patrol captain for District 3.

GP CHARTER VOTE DEFEATS AMENDMENTS

amendments defeatedGALENA PARK – Over 750 voters went to the polls last Saturday, to express their opinion on whether the City Charter should be amended, and how it should read.
In a stunning defeat of the propositions, all were defeated by a margin averaging 540 AGAINST, and only 220 FOR.

After months of wrangling and arguing over who has authority to run the city, the Mayor, the Council, or the City Manager, the voters chose two amendments, #10 and #14, to focus the most negative votes against allowing the city manager and the council to have more authority.

Amendment #10, defeated 558 to 187, would have permanently established a city manager style of government.

Amendment #14, defeated 557 to 185, would have required two councilpersons to agree with the mayor to veto any city actions.

City leaders, including a Charter Committee of 16 citizens, headed by former councilman Joe Thibodeaux, had written and favored all 18 amendments, and had excluded 4 others they felt were not required.

The impetus to amend the charter, ironically, had started with Mayor Esmeralda Moya soon after her election last year, when it became clear that she did not have the authority to run council meetings and hire and fire city personnel in a manner that she wished, and that she often said was “what the people want.”

However, as the Charter Amendments were promulgated by the committee, and prepared for the election process, she and others spoke out against the amendment package.
