1/23-2/22 Incident Report
Lowell Police Department reports they are working well with the bars and the parking garages. The bars will turn the lights on and stop serving if things get too rowdy and the garages are opening their gets so LPD can get in.
Colleen Brady – Can we get cruisers patrolling the garages?
We have been following people into the garages when the bars get out. If we find people drinking in there, we act on it immediately.
Darryl – Can we deal with the crowds at Merrimack and Dutton at nights?
Lt. Penrose says they will look into patrolling there more. In general, they work to keep people moving.
Jack – People in cars are still not paying attention to the traffic lights, esp at Central and Market.
Lt. Penrose says they’ll police that intersection.
Corey – Citizen Police Academy starts up on Thursday

We will look into it.

It wouldn’t go over well.
