Sanborn/Ossineke residents meet to discuss crime safety
A large number of residents say the number of crimes and acts of violence is escalating in the township and law enforcement is slow to respond.
They want police to be more proactive. But tight budgets have forced reductions in staffing and patrol areas.
Alpena County Commissions have formed an ad hoc committee to see what if anything can be done to improve the situation.
In the meantime, residents aren’t waiting too see how the county responds. They are holding another public meeting to gather information and discuss ideas on how to make the community a safer place to live.
That meeting is being held next Monday, July 9, at 6:30 p.m. inside Connie’s Café.
All citizens are invited to attend but especially those who have been victims of crime.
