Councilman Tom Simplot will host his Seventh Annual District 4 Crime Summit at 8 a.m. Saturday, March 13, at Memorial Hall, Steele Indian School Park, 300 E. Indian School Road. The summit will bring together leading government officials, neighborhood activists and law enforcement personnel to brainstorm policies that could better address local crime issues. This year’s guest speaker will be U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke.
Since its inception in 2004, the crime summit has laid the groundwork for a number of city ordinances, including two municipal laws in 2005 regulating the sale of common cold and allergy medications that contain key raw materials used to make methamphetamines. The meeting will highlight potential policies that will better address crime issues in the community.
In addition to the crime summit, Councilman Simplot also will have his monthly district meeting at 8 a.m. Thursday, March 11, at the Neighborhood Learning Center, 1516 N. 35th Ave. The meeting will highlight information on the upcoming 2010 Census, as well as the new pedestrian improvements that have been implemented in the community.
