We are pleased to report that Westbrook Police Chief Janine Roberts joined us for lunch on April 12. She provided a brief update on policing initiatives underway in Westbrook. 
Thanks to grant funding and a City match, the Community Policing Coordinator for the Brown St area of Westbrook has been on the job for 6 months.  The officer is located at 192 Brown St in a converted apartment and the department now expects funding will be available for a second year.
Westbrook will have two bicycle officers this summer and two new patrol officers will be coming on board May 1.
A new police dog has been purchased.  The dog's name is Brook and her Canine Officer will be Ben Paul.
