TCA had a lot of people there tonight which was great. I believe Jason said about 60 people. I'm not going to go over the minutes so if you want to know what was said, go to the meetings. Only 1/2 percent of Turley showed up but almost everyone wants to bitch.
With that said, Instead of droning over the "Report List", TCSO gave actual arrests! I hate the report list as that is just basically call-ins.
They talked about the Community Watch, (BTW ET said TCSO loves CHP, :-) ). More things are planned with TCW but there are only 4 or 5 people doing it. What a shame.
Do you want to know how to help with Minimal effort? PUT YOUR CRAP AWAY AND DO NOT LEAVE IT ON YOUR FRONT LAWN. I have been on a couple of watches and am horrified at all the stuff that is in the open and ready for the taking. Your just begging for thieves to take it.
The other thing you can do is get a porch light. If everyone did this, your streets will be brighter and safer. Thieves don't want to be noticed.
They are starting to patch the roads in some areas, but this takes time. I know there patch jobs wash away in the rain, But they are trying. I did ask them to at least mow North Peoria.
So folks, things are happening and the ball is rolling. But remember, things take time. Turley has been neglected for a long time but it will get better.
And go to the meetings and see what you can do in spare time. I know for some of you its difficult as you work and have familys, but even an hour here and there will make a big differance if everyone chips in.
