Police Chief Pristoop Update to the ECA

Police Chief Pristoop spoke at the ECA Membership meeting in November. The Chief was aware that the Eastport community was not happy with recent violence. He reported that crime often is interpersonal violence and the police know who the problem people are, but believe that they are not always having cooperation from victims to get those people out of the community. Cameras are beneficial and partnerships with the FBI, Maryland State police and Anne Arundel County are helping to close cases and successfully trace guns. The City of Annapolis hopes to add more resources and is buying more cameras. The Department has also recovered 70 guns in 2016. Often the judicial system lets people back out on the street after the police arrests.

The Chief said the Department is committed to getting drugs and guns off the street. There is always 1 police officer in Eastport and usually 2-3 others. Drugs and guns are hooked together now. The Chief believes that HACA needs more security officers and that each officer needs to remain assigned to one place. He considers it a good tool that the Housing Authority Board is taking the steps necessary to have a banning policy reinstated because it worked in the past. The Annapolis Police Department will enforce the banning. Each camera costs about $1500 and it costs the City about $60,000 per year to keep the cameras going. The footage is retained for 60-90 days.

Chief Pristoop asks the community to call for help if they see any suspicious activity. Call 911 or 410-268-4141 with the date, time, location and description of what was observed.
