Subject: Request for State Funding for License Plate Reading System in Jericho West Birchwood Community
Dear Assemblyman Lavine,
I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to you on behalf of the residents of the Jericho West Birchwood community in Jericho, NY, to request state funding for the purchase, installation, and annual subscription of an approved License Plate Reading (LPR) system. Our community has been grappling with persistent issues related to theft, break-ins, and criminal activities, and we believe that the implementation of an LPR system will greatly enhance our neighborhood's safety and security.
Over the past few years, our community has experienced an alarming increase in car thefts, break-ins, and even attempted home invasions. Incidents such as the theft of catalytic converters and three recent attempted home break-ins, all captured on surveillance cameras, have left our residents deeply concerned for the safety of their families and properties. Our proximity to main roads and parkways facilitates quick access for criminals to leave the scene, making our community particularly vulnerable to these offenses.
To address these pressing issues, we propose the installation of up to nine cameras strategically placed throughout the Jericho West Birchwood community. The implementation of an LPR system will not only act as a deterrent but will also significantly improve the chances of identifying and apprehending individuals involved in criminal activities. We believe that such a system will complement the efforts of the 2nd Precinct Police and enhance overall public safety in our neighborhood.
I kindly request that you work in collaboration with the Civic Association of West Birchwood and the 2nd Precinct Police to secure state funding for this essential project. We are aware that neighboring communities have received funding for LPR systems, and we believe that our community deserves the same level of support. The implementation of this system will not only contribute to the safety of our residents but also serve as a valuable resource for law enforcement.
I appreciate your attention to this matter and look forward to the possibility of working together to make our community a safer place for everyone. If you require any additional information or would like to discuss this matter further, please do not hesitate to contact me at 516-972-1218 or Michael@Westbirchwood.org or MA4utopia@gmail.com
Thank you for your time and consideration.

With the pandemic hopefully behind us, we need your support now more than ever to maintain, enhance, and beautify our community to keep West Birchwood up to the highest standards. We have some great ideas and projects that we are working on accomplishing through 2021-2022.
