The Zone 5 Public Safety Council meets on the second Tuesday of most months at 7:00 p.m. to discuss public safety issues and updates from throughout Zone 5. Residents attend to share information, trends, and successes from their communities; supply the Zone 5 officers in attendance with tips and emerging problems from their neighborhoods; and learn from Zone 5 officers and guest speakers so that they may inform their neighbors, blockwatches, and community groups.

This month, Maria Bethel will be speaking at the start of the meeting about the City of Pittsburgh’s Disruptive Properties Ordinance and properties in Zone 5 that have received Disruptive Properties notices.

Twice a year, half of the Zone Councils work together to hold a Citywide Public Safety meeting. This fall, the meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 23rd at 6:00 p.m. at the South Hills Retirement Residence (125 Ruth Street, 15211). Please join residents and public safety employees from around the City to discuss public safety at this special event.
