The annual East Cambridge Crime Prevention Meeting and Boat Cruise will take place tonight, September 19. The boat will leave the Charles Riverboat Company at the Cambridgeside Galleria at 6:00pm, so the organizers have asked that people arrive between 5:30 and 5:45 for boarding.
Once you’re on the river, pizza and light refreshments will be served as neighbors will have the chance to speak with police officers and detectives in an informal setting. I’ve always believed that community members and public safety officials need to work hand-in-glove, and events such as this boat cruise are a great way to build trust and open lines of communication.
The weather’s been beautiful, and with luck, this boat cruise will include a sunset. I hope you’ll attend!
