Is There Any Way To Make Fell's Point Safer?

The Fell's Pointer is conducting this survey as a forum to collect public opinion on the matter of neighborhood safety and security. Although you may find a couple joke responses herein, we would seriously like to hear your opinions and safety ideas.
The results from this survey will be summarized and your comments may also be used anonymously for an article in the November Fell's Pointer. If you have a lot to say, why not write an article yourself?
The Fell's Pointer is a forum for neighbors to discuss important issues in the community. The variety of options you see below are not they opinions of the Fell's Pointer or its writers, they are lists designed to allow neighbors to express a wide range of feelings they may have. Some come from listening to Alex, neighbors, and Zeke Cohen throw ideas around in the aftermath of the stabbing.
We will also make survey results available to our City Councilman Zeke Cohen to share with policymakers as some feedback from his constituents! So please give your best ideas.
