To encourage community participation in the Citywide Public Safety Meeting, taking place on Wednesday, October 21st at 6:30pm, the October 21 Oakwatch meeting has been cancelled.

OPDC will help coordinate transportation for those who need a ride to the meeting, which will take place on Pittsburgh's North Side. If you need a ride or can provide a ride to an Oakland neighbor, please contact 412.621.7863 ext. 25 so they can match riders and drivers.

“Where do we go from here?” is the evening’s topic; the City of Pittsburgh invites you to learn to build collaborative strategies for community safety with new public safety programs and community-oriented initiatives.

Mayor William Peduto is the guest speaker, and light refreshments will be served at 6:30.

Other updates:

With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, OPDC reached out to public safety officers regarding plans for that weekend. Zone 4 is increasing their presence on the streets of Oakland that weekend, hiring additional officers who will concentrate on disruptive behavior and quality of life issues.

Please call 911 to report any disturbances as they are happening. If you need to report a non-emergency issue, please call 311 or go online to report the issue: http://www.pittsburghpa.gov/311/form. As always, we encourage you to let Oakwatch know when you have called 911 or 311 about an issue so they can help track responses on your behalf.
