Manchester Police Hosting Community Meeting To Address Spike In Burglaries

Manchester police will host a community meeting tonight, following a surge in burglaries over the summer.

Police recorded 338 burglaries in the city between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

That’s a 23 percent increase over the same period last year.

The vast majority of those burglaries occurred in homes.

Tonight’s meeting starts at 6 and will be held in the Officer Michael Briggs Community Center at the corner of Lake Avenue and Beech Street.

People attending will have the chance to review and share information with the department’s command staff.
