Councilor Plans Forum for Crime Prevention

Councilor-at-Large David D'Arcangelo is organizing a "Peace Through Service" Community Forum to bring Maldonians together to collaborate on reducing violence in the city.

A city councilor hopes to bring members of the city's business, non-profit and service groups to collaborate on crime prevention strategies during a “Peace Through Service” Community Forum next week.

Councilor-at-Large David D'Arcangelo - who is also the president of the Malden Rotary Club, which is organizing the event - said he hoped the forum would be another tool in the city's push to prevent violent crime.

The city has seen an usual spike in shootings this summer.

"We, as a community, must make every effort to promote the ideal of peace and come together to understand how we can prevent violent acts in and around our City,” he wrote in an e-mail.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at the Malden YMCA.

Anyone with questions or those interested in participating can contact D'Arcangelo at david@arcangelcommunications.com.

Eddie, only way I would march is with a bullet proof vest under my suit of armor. They have these things in Dorchester every week, hasn't helped one bit, why would it work here. Waste of time.

We should re-enact the police academy movie when the city has the big political crime prevention carnival and the gang of thugs show up and trash it until the police with Hightower and Tackleberry finally chase them away. Do we have a Malden Officer that can play real life Capt Lessard. Now we just need to find a gang in Malden and that could be tough.

I made the time work for me . This was a well organized event with great healthy debate. Thank you for hosting this event and reaching out to the community . I am hopeful that this is the beginning of something good. I'm not ready to give up on Malden.
