Neighborhood Policing in Portland, Maine

Neigborhood Policing in Portland, Maine: 
"Officer Karl Geib says building relationships with residents and businesses in Portland's West End is nothing new, but giving everyone access to his e-mail address and cell phone number has made it easier to keep his finger on the pulse of the neighborhood.  "I get a lot of e-mails from people, a lot of phone calls to me from citizens," said Geib, who is senior lead officer for the area.  Geib also is part of a patrol team -- on Friday, he was responding to calls from Congress Street to the Old Port -- and so he can't focus solely on partnerships and problem-solving."
