I was at the Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council Meeting yesterday. What follows are some tweets from me an others related to the meeting that I’ve compiled using Storify. The agenda included Chief Matt Torigian making a presentation on policing and crime prevention and a discussion that follows. I’ve kept it in chronological order so you may need to scroll down a bit to get to that part. But be sure to watch the dancing guy video first.

Let me know what you think of this format of post. Better yet, let me know what you think of the content.

    I’m among those who have received what they’re calling the “lone nut” award by #WRCPC. Apparently I’m like the dancing guy.

    #WRPS chair Tom Galloway says calls for service increasing faster than pop growth. People think police should come when they call. #WRCPC

    Galloway’s point is that not all calls are appropriate for police response. Expectations need to change. #WRCPC

    Galloway’s point is found in my second post on budgeting for crime prevention. I think 211 needs to be part of the solution. #WRCPC
