Public Safety Topic of Community Meeting Thursday Night

Meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Multi Service Center.

A community meeting will be held Thursday night to discuss public safety issues.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Multi Service Center at 124 Grand St.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer, Public Safety Director Jon Tooke, Councilman Tim Occhipinti and members of the Hoboken Police Department will be among those in attendance.

The meeting comes less than two weeks after a woman was sexually assaulted in the hallway of an apartment building in the area of Monroe and 1st streets. Authorities are still looking for the man responsible and have increased patrols in the area of the incident.

Security theater. We had people breaking into our building and sleeping in halls at night, taking things, urinating, etc... the Hoboken PD did nothing. Didn't even bother to show up, not once - but I would see them hanging out "patrolling" the local bars and restaurants - double parked of course.

What sort of building do you live in? High rise? Are your problems ongoing or limited to bar crawl events?

I live in a 5 over 1 in the NW area of town. All the buildings around me are 5 over 1 (garage on first floor) and we suffer from flooding constantly. We had not one, but two different men living in our 6th floor stairwell & on our roof. The cops did NOTHING about it and actually told us they recognized the guys as local homeless & they are harmless. We had to change our door locks, our door codes, we put an alarm on our stairwell. There are children in our building. These men could have hurt them, or the college girls living there.

If there is no breaking and entering there is no crime. Seems like property management is not providing adequate locks. Some buildings have open access to the garage and from there open access to stairwells. If your building does not have these situations , then someone is letting them in. Never had any such problems in our large condo building over many years.
