Really good news

DPD Chief Jose Lopez was our guest at the neighborhood association meeting last night. While i was getting ready to harangue him on the speeding issue, Officer Bayne stopped by with a fresh supply of PACE Car magnets and an announcement that the program was being restarted.

Really good news. It seems like half the problem of dealing with unsafe streets has been getting DPD leadership to recognize that this is important. Fortunately, we weren't treated to the "other neighborhoods in Durham wish that speeding was their biggest problem" line that's been handed out on other occasions.

Probably helped that, of the 30 or so people in attendance, almost everyone raised their hand in response to the "have you had your house broken into in the past year" question. We know what our problems, and our priorities, are.

So, Officer Bayne, and everyone else at DPD who's working on this issue, thank you.

  • That's great! I'm glad to hear that this program is getting re-instated. I think that the city needs to follow this up with an education campaign directed towards drivers, since I expect most drivers don't know what these magnets that they see mean.
