REPORT NOISE (AND OTHER VIOLATIONS) IN THE PARK
- Call 911. While this may not elicit an immediate response (as calls are prioritized based on a classification system), it will create a record of our actions.
- Call the 39th Police District at 215-686-3390. Captain Glenn explained that this can be helpful to his staff as they deploy resources.
- Post your actions on the Blue Bell Hill Listserv. This will help the Civic Association keep track of our actions, the frequency and the response.
- If there isn’t an adequate response in a reasonable amount of time, please call the Blue Bell Hill Park Action Line at 215 688 7254. This is a pre-paid cellular phone (purchased by the Civic Association) that will be answered by our Blue Bell Hill Park Liaison, Sue Hoffman.
- Sue will check to make sure that the above-mentioned steps have been taken (call to 911, District Office, etc.) and then she will contact Captain Glenn directly on his personal cell phone number.
Captain Glenn was willing to share his personal cell phone number with us, and as a Civic, we determined that this was the best approach for handling this resource. Sue has agreed to serve as Park Liaison and we all owe her a debt of gratitude for her willingness to help maintain an open line of communication between the neighborhood and the Police. Thank you, Sue.
In an emergency, call 911.
In addition to calling 911 if a potential crime is in progress, please contact the District Community Relations Officer whenever you believe that more frequent police patrols are warranted.
Letters and faxes generally get a better response (especially if you copy the Blue Bell Hill Community Yahoo user group).
