Vice Mayor Nora Davis recently announced the City of Emeryville's intention to conduct a public meeting to make sure Emeryville residents know that crime is illegal. The Chief of Police, Dave Hall confirmed the proposed meeting, adding people need to call the police when crime is witnessed.
Normally, people have grasped the idea by the time they turn 18 years that crime is illegal and that the police should be called in response, however apparently in Emeryville, Councilwoman Davis feels there are many people who never gleaned that and some public education is in order. City Hall has not revealed how much taxpayer money will be spent on the educational meeting but some amount of paid staff time, at least Mr Hall's, will be allocated to the effort.
The date and the time of the meeting has not yet been announced, but the Tattler will report on this when it is available.
