This is a reminder that the Riverview Neighborhood Ass’n is sponsoring a Crime and Safety Meeting tonight. It will be outside at the Yard Bar (former Elwoods) 19th and Riverside, at 7pm tonight. The owners of the Yard Bar have graciously agreed to open their facility for us for our meeting (normally they are not open Monday nights). They will have some snacks and a full bar. We encourage attendees to show their appreciation by making some purchases for this Riverview establishment.

As to tonight’s meeting, we are please to announce that our guests will be:

District 4 Councilor Kara Joy McKee:
— tulsacouncil.org/councilors/district-4/
— Dist4tulsacouncil.org
— (918) 596-1924.

Brant Pitchford, Supervisor, Working in Neighborhoods (“WIN”), City of Tulsa:
— cityoftulsa.org/government/departments/working-in-neighborhoods/

Officers Steve Meineke and/or William Badgett, Tulsa Police Department; and

Tyler Parette, Housing Solutions:
–housingsolutionstulsa.org

We thank them all for volunteering their time to discuss this topic of great importance and interest in our neighborhood.

I will come to the meeting with handout showing how residents or neighbors can authorize the Tulsa Police Department to come upon private property when it observes trespassing. Mr. Pitchford can discuss this in more detail.

Also, in the past, we have been reminded that reporting a crime or problem on Facebook or Nexdoor is not an effective means by which to get the attention of law enforcement. I have been provided a Tulsa Police Department website address that lists contact numbers for categories of crimes or problems that may be of use to you. It is: tulsapolice.org/contact-tpd/contact-usphone.aspx. I will also have a print out for these numbers, if anyone would like that.

The Board of the Association looks forward to seeing you tonight and to having a productive meeting. Rick Eagleton, President, Riverview Neighborhood Association. 918-845-0637.
