On Dec. 20, two 16-year-old boys from East Palo Alto were arrested on suspicion of residential burglary in the Willows. They were booked into Hillcrest Juvenile Detention Facility on two counts of residential burglary each.
At the meeting Wednesday, Menlo Park Mayor Kirsten Keith, Police Chief Bob Jonsen, Police Commander William Dixon and city police officers will discuss how they are addressing the burglary problem and answer questions.
Detective Jason Poirier will talk about crime prevention "through environmental design." The concept, according to the city's website, is that people can reduce crime near their homes by "eliminating criminal opportunities in and around your property." Well-maintained, well-lit and difficult-to-access properties, for instance, can be less appealing targets for burglars.
Community Service Officer Gonee Sepulveda will talk about the police department's neighborhood watch program.
