Councilman Cunningham recommends crime notification process for Media

Crime reporting in Media is severely lacking on many fronts.  Over Halloween weekend it was disclosed at last week's council meeting that 8 cars were vandalized on West 4th St. with spray paint, sugar and other damaging activities.  Not only that, but the followup on prior burglaries and crimes is almost non-existent.  What ever became of the investigation of the cars broken into at Oakmont?!?!

Residents should be notified immediately about these types of issues; where the incident occurred, what is being done and the outcome of the investigations. It's ridiculous that people have to to wait until a monthly borough council meeting to find out the outcomes.

Kudos to Councilman, Jim Cunningham for recognizing this and offering discussion at the next public safety meeting to determine a better way of disseminating this information in a quick fashion.  There is really no reason why people can't be notified better.
