Issues: drug dealing
881-925 Chapel St New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Downtown
The people who loiter on the benches on the corner of the green are obviously dealing drugs and using them there too. Posting an officer there during the day would stop the trafficking and make the "park" much more enjoyable.

Friday the 13'th, at around 9:30 - 10 am , aN NHPD officer twitching and shaking while waiting in the bank line. The cop was so nervous i thought he was going to rob the place . He was sweating profusely. If it's not drugs then maybe an excessive consumption of Red Bulls
I think the car was #32, not sure though , i dropped the ball on that one . Stay alert people

1 Union Avenue New Haven, CT 06519, USA - Downtown
We have been experiencing an exceedingly great number of quality of life issues and crime around 1 Union Ave and we would very much like the New Haven Police Department to be fix the issues before the summer months arrive. We noticed the police department continues to bill the tax payers, yet are not providing even the very basic services that a police department is expected to provide. Crime is out of control; people are constantly shooting people and being shot, violence in general is beyond scary, and all other gang crime and drug crimes are becoming far too common and committed in the open. Traffic violations are out of control; there are speeding cars everywhere, basic traffic rules are disregarded by almost everyone, and people committing more serious offenses like running red lights and stops signs occur at a frequency that is beyond appalling. Quality of life issues are out of control; the list is so long and everyone knows it.
Why don't you start by pulling people over for basic offenses like: no brake lights, headlights out, cracked windshields, missing plates, expired plates, tinted windows, loud mufflers, and loud music. If they have tinted windows, pull them over. If they then look suspicious, search the vehicle. If they have a loud muffler, pull them over. If they then look suspicious, search the vehicle. If they are playing loud music, pull them over. If they then look suspicious, search the vehicle. I guarantee the results of following these very basic procedures will be noticed by ALL the City of New Haven residents and its out of town visitors. The people who value life and want a decent quality of life will be very appreciative.
You say you cannot because you are undermanned/understaffed. Not true. You need to restructure your department. It is as simple as that. You also need to get your priorities straight. Why do we see countless officers all over town watching construction workers doing their jobs? Or, directing traffic like a flagman, at best? You say safety. Not true. Why not hire a real flagger who has been trained? Half the time these officers are sitting in their cars talking on their cell phones. Lately, we have seen not one cop at each construction site, but two, usually sitting around talking and not paying attention. All of these officers could, and SHOULD, be driving around pulling people over for the above mentioned quality of life and traffic offenses. Simple as that. Again, if they have tinted windows, pull them over. If they then look suspicious, search the vehicle. If they have a loud muffler, pull them over. If they then look suspicious, search the vehicle. If they are playing loud music, pull them over. If they then look suspicious, search the vehicle. The procedure is simple and effective and has years of use behind it to back up its effectiveness.
If you follow this simple plan that I have spelled out above (it doesn't require much brain matter), it is certain that this little town of 124,000 people can return to some degree of normalcy before the summer really gets going. I am sure there are many other New Haven residents out there that would agree with me.
Thank you for your time,
A New Haven Resident

more needs to be done to prevent this coffeeshop from becoming a hangout for the homeless. (i don't deny that more needs to be done FOR the homeless, but this one business should not shoulder that burden/suffer because business is driven away.)
every time i visit here, i hear disrespectful language yelled across the store, conversations about drugs including potential drug deals right in the store, and generally offensive conversations. it is very frustrating that this happens often in front of children and first-time visitors to new haven.
i see the same several faces every time who commit these acts. after one guy yelled "f you" loudly across the entire store, i turned and made a motion to calm down with my hand, because there was a 3 or 4 year old in line behind me. he responded with " bl*w me".
bars can ban certain customers who do not behave themselves. can starbucks begin to do the same?

Rosewood Ave New Haven, CT - Downtown
Drug middle men are using Rosewood Avenue as a meeting place to hook up sellers with buyers. This happens mostly during the day when residents are at work and the buyers and sellers go un-noticed. Sellers brag that "this is a clean street"

A blue Schwinn mountain bike,chrome rack, was stolen saturday as i sunned and read the paper.( what the green is for ?) A thin black male, 5'-6" - 5'8" tall, snuck behind me and grabbed my unlocked bike, i had my sandals off. I did not know how bad that place was overrun. The thief was last seen headed towards Dixwell Ave.Might have been spotted around Bassett St - seems to be a lot of issues over there.
Folks reports of open air drug dealing should be taken very seriously

16 and over to drink in this place every Thursday Friday and Saturday. The owner gives everyone a drinking bracelet if they pay a higher cover charge. Never mind the drug sales that happen there, its right across the street from a school. This must be stopped they need to be raided again
