The Cactus Park Community Alliance in conjunction with the Cactus Wren Block Watch hosted the U.S. Department of Justice regarding their inquiry into our Phoenix Police Department. 

This special meeting was held at the Doubletree Hotel at Metro Center  on Wednesday evening, June 29, 2022 at 5:30PM.  Attendees were treated to soup and sandwiches.

The DOJ did not share results.  They did discussing why they began the inquiry, what they are looking for, and other such details.  They answered question after their presentation and there was a comment period afterward where many Community members stepped up to share their experiences and opinions.

The event was a huge success!  Prior to the event, North Glenn Square and CMS each had a pallet delivered directly to the precinct.  Each pallet is 48 cases of 40 each so their donations were 1900 bottles each for a total of 3,800.  On Saturday, we delivered over 20,000 bottles of water and have cash donations of approximately $1,300 which will be used to purchase another 6.5 pallets for an additional 12,480 bottles.  There were over 100 cases donated at the event and there was a steady stream of vehicles for the Scouts to unload.  In addition to the water, there were boxes and boxes of snack items, valued at approximately $200, that were donated for the Officer Cantina.

It took over 2 hours to unload using the “bucket brigade” method and the halls and patio of the precinct are filled with water.  

Below is some of the activity on Saturday morning.  A huge THANK YOU to Scout Troop 747 who helped with loading the truck, then unloading at the precinct.

Message from Councilwoman Ann O’Brien

Even though Council is not fully back in session yet, my office is back in full swing of things! As a reminder, the first Council Meeting for our next session will be on August 31st. Be sure to mark your calendars!

Over the weekend I had the amazing opportunity to join Thrive Phoenix and their organizer, Nina, as we worked to clean up Bell Rd and the 19th Ave area. Big thank you to all the volunteers who turned out to clean up the community and take pride in where they live! A shout-out to our men and women in the Black Mountain Police Precinct who watched over all the volunteers to keep us safe and even picked up a trash bag or two to help us out! Another shout-out to the Black Mountain Community Alliance, Bell Road Business Alliance, and the Village Meadows Block Watch for helping to spread the word to the community about this clean up! And again, a HUGE THANK YOU to Nina for all her work and ownership within this community. Together we are making a difference!

On Monday, I meet with representatives from the FAA to discuss future changes to flight……..

The purpose of the project is to improve the drainage facilities that remove storm runoff from the Greenway, Thunderbird, Cactus and Peoria cross streets, helping to reduce the potential for flooding at the I-17 overpasses.
