Officers Ryan Ostler and Joe Stutto took engaging the community to a new level recently while on walking patrols in the Highland Park area. Chief Brian Kyes said it was a great example of how the police can casually interact with young people and adults in their patrol areas. “This is known as Community Engagement 101 and exactly what I want to see on our impact patrols in certain areas of the city,” said the chief. “As I have mentioned in the past, we definitely spend more of our time interacting with the public who have the best interests of the community at heart rather than the ill-intentioned few that try to tear at the fabric of what we have worked so hard with our residents and other stakeholders to build up here in Chelsea.
