What is the MPPD presence in Bell Haven compared to other residential areas of the city?
Bell haven has a population of about 5,000 or 15% of the Menlo Park population, but with a density 2 1/2 times the Menlo Park city average.
There are only four vehicular exits from Bell Haven - Chico, Hamilton, Ivy and Newbridge. How about putting those new cameras up at those points.

Living on the west side of Menlo and hardly ever seeing a police car I'm guessing there is more of a police presence in Bell Haven than anywhere else in the city. Most police departments distribute their forces based upon calls for service. If they're higher in East Menlo I suspect so is the police staffing.
