Town Hall Meeting on Police Issues, Tuesday, February 12

City Invites Residents to Meet New Police Chief and Discuss Crime Issues –

On Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at 7:30 PM, the City of Piedmont will hold a Town Hall meeting at the Veterans Memorial Building to introduce residents to Piedmont’s new Chief of Police, Rikki Goede. This meeting will be hosted by the City’s Public Safety Committee and will be attended by members of the City Council, the City Administrator, and other City officials.

Understanding that residents have been upset by recent crimes in Piedmont, there will be a presentation about the increase of crime in Piedmont with a significant focus on the steps that the Police Department is taking to combat these trends. There will also be a good amount of time set aside for residents to participate in a question and answer period with Chief Goede.

Chief Goede started her career as a police officer, then Sergeant with the City of San Diego, where she worked for 10 years. For the past 16 years, Goede has worked in the City of San Jose, beginning as an officer and working her way up to the position of Assistant Chief. In her long career in law enforcement, Goede has worked in virtually all areas of police activities, including patrol, field training, crime prevention, internal affairs, robbery, gang investigations, and a variety of command assignments.

The formal agenda for the meeting is being developed in consultation with the Public Safety Committee and will be released as the Town Hall meeting draws near.
