Meeting Minutes - November 16th, 2016
Our guest speaker today was Robert Noble, Chief of the Yorktown Police Department. He is a member of the Westchester Emerald Society and is an Elk. He believes that one of the main duties of the police is to meet and talk to the people and the Police Department recently held a meet and greet for this purpose. He is also in favor of law enforcement clubs in the high schools and asking local store owners to practice safe diligence. These and other things will help to deter crime. Bob spoke about spams which are prevalent and the Do Not Call system and he gave us some handouts relating to these matters as well as a few safety tips. He added that he believes there should be more women in law enforcement and welcomes prospective candidates.
