The meeting was conducted by Dep Inspector Reid.
The first order of business was to talk about the recent car break ins in the Rocky Point and Sound Beach area. We were informed that they have Persons of Interest and the community can help by making sure all cars are locked. They have increased patrols on the overnight shifts.

ATV issues continue and the PCT is always working to reduce the problem and are currently working with a count legislator to increase fines associated with violations.
