Meet Montclair’s Finest this Tuesday evening, from 6:30-8:30pm at the Montclair Library (map).
Officer Melvin Burmudez serves as our main Problem Solving Officer (PSO), while Jason Scott helps with traffic matters in the Village. In addition, outgoing Sgt. Brad Young will be there along with his replacement Bernard Ortiz.
We mostly suffer from thefts and robberies in Montclair, usually a handful or two monthly. You may look up exact locations via the Oakland Crimewatch site.
Our Montclair and North Hills watchdog groups jointly organized the meeting, since they focus on all neighborhoods located in Beat 13Z (south of Thornhill), and Beat 13Y (north of Thornhill) respectively.
Everyone is invited to meet the officers, and put faces to these names. Find out what they do, learn how to help them, and ask any questions in this forum.
