New Community Liaison Officer for 9 Precinct

The Columbus Division of Police believes a single point of contact is an effective method to stay in touch with community members.

Therefore, one Community Liaison officer is assigned to each of our 20 precincts in order for the citizens who live in that precinct to have direct access to an officer. This liaison officer can address long-term crime and quality of life issues, as well as attend community meetings and oversee block watch efforts. These officers have special training in crime prevention, solving such problems and directing necessary resources to problems and areas that need our help.

The Community Liaison officer for the Berwick and surrounding areas is:

Officer David Laroche #1034
Telephone: 614.645.1409
Email: dlaroche@columbuspolice.org

“Branch Out Columbus” tree program

 

A new report shows that Columbus needs to plant 300,000 trees in the next five years to recover from damage caused by insects and severe weather. Some areas have less than 15% tree canopy cover and are in desperate need of new plantings. As a community we can achieve this goal together.

For more information, check out the City of Columbus website.

Farewell to Bruce & Angie Black

At the February 2017 BCA meeting, Bruce Black ended his current term as BCA President.  A plaque was awarded to him for his 16 years of service.

His wife, Angie, a long-time BCA trustee and a past BCA President herself, resigned as BCA trustee the same evening.

We wish them both well and thank them profusely for all of their hard work over the years!!!
