Enforcement. Arrest for disorderly conduct. We must enforce state laws. We gotta set the tone.
A Police blotter will soon be published. Publishing reports of people getting arrested in Ventnor.
‘Ventnor is no Mayberry’ says Police Chief Biagi.
Chief Biagi expects eventually, he’ll get complaints about the blotter. Even though it’s an effective, yet embarrassing tool to encourage good behavior. Biagi mused: It might go away….when/if we arrest the wrong person’s son.
Ventnor Police now working closer with City Zoning. This will help identify zoning non-compliance with both business and residential properties.
Ventnor Police are using large amounts of Narcan. ‘Using it on a crazy level. We’re buying it in bulk’ says Biagi.
Ventnor Police Body-Cams and Dashboard Cameras to be utilized.
By February, Ventnor Police officers will wear body-cams. Training is going on now. Police vehicle dashboard cameras will also be installed.
It works both ways. Protect police officers from untrue or inaccurate accusations. It helps citizens too.
