The Historic Overlook Community Club will have a special Overlook neighborhood meeting on Thursday, December 3 rd. from 7:00 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. at Kingsbury School gym to promote concrete action on important security issues, problems and complaints that neighbors face daily in the Overlook community.
From the Desk of Police Chief Gugliotti:
In response to two recent unfortunate crime incidents in the Overlook area, a meeting was held this past Wednesday at the Mayor’s Office. This meeting was attended by Mayor Neil O’Leary, Chief of Staff Joseph Geary, leaders from the Historic Overlook Association and Yeshiva community, and members of the Police Department’s command staff including myself. The meeting was both positive and productive and we were able to share useful information and ideas with each other. In response to these two crimes, the Police Department has increased presence in the Overlook area. This includes an increase in uniformed officers, plainclothes detectives, and specialized units such as our Street Crime Unit.
In March 2012 a Yeshiva student was attacked and britally beaten in the Overlook Neighborhood in Waterbury. The Historic Overlook Community Club called an emergency meeting that was attended by Mayor Neil O'Leary and a large contingent of Waterbury police officers who addressed the situation. Concerns in the neighborhood are heightened again after an armed robbery. Community leaders, who wrote the following letter, are calling for another meeting with the mayor and an increased police presence in the Overlook neighborhood. Photograph by John Murray
(Editor's note - the following letter was sent by concerned community leaders in the Overlook neighborhood in Waterbury following an armed robbery)
We regret to inform you about an attack which took place this evening in our neighborhood. One of our community members was mugged at gunpoint as she stood in front of her house. In light of the fact that this is the second attack in the past two weeks, we are extremely concerned about this disturbing trend and we all have to work together to ensure our safety.
