Is there a gang problem in Northlake?
Probably not. But Northlake Community Alliance Chairman Tom Ulbricht said he wants residents and business owners to be on the lookout regardless.
The DeKalb County District Attorney's Office will talk with the alliance at its May 19 meeting at . Here's an excerpt from the group's website:
NCA will host its Annual Meeting on Thursday, May 19, 2011 from 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm at the Briarlake Baptist Church, Backlot Building. After a brief business meeting to re-elect board members, Mr. Michael S. Carlson, Deputy Chief Asst. District Attorney, DeKalb Co. will make a presentation on Street Gang activity in the Northlake/DeKalb community. This is a tremendously important topic for citizens and businesses. There will also be comments from the DeKalb County Police Department on this subject and there will be time for Q&A.
Ulbricht told North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch a county police officer will also be at the meeting to address issues specific to the Northlake community.
“We just want people to be knowledgable about what’s going on," he said.
