If You See Something, Send Something!
Councilman Mark Mayoka’s Crisis Mapping is Moving Forward
Councilman Mark Mayoka first introduced Crisis Mapping as a tool to reduce crime in Huntington in a meeting at Jack Abrams Intermediate School, on April 28, 2010. He is pleased to announce the launch of Huntington’s first crisis mapping initiative which will allow the reporting of blight, the first of its kind on Long Island. On March 1st this year, the Town of Huntington rolled out “Huntington At Your Service”. This new interactive software enables all Town of Huntington residents to submit their blight complaints online. When using the new “Huntington At Your Service”, the blight management module can be accessed under the heading of Public Safety, Code Enforcement and Security. Crisis Mapping will initially focus on residential and commercial blight, graffiti, abandoned vehicles and litter. Councilman Mayoka has established a committee that will meet next Tuesday March 13th at 2pm in room 304 to further develop a platform and establish the objectives of our Crisis Mapping program. The meeting is open to the public. The goal is to improve communications between the town residents, the Department of Public Safety and the 2nd Police Precinct. Councilman Mayoka is developing a tutorial to assist resident’s ability to report blight; in addition, he will be spearheading a public awareness campaign, whose slogan will be: “If You See Something, Send Something!”
