THE CRIME RATE IN EAST MEADOW IS SPIKING. It's frightening for long-time residents, like myself. I sometimes go to that Pathmark and it is not secured with a guard of any sort and often there are people asking for money in the parking lot and near the store. They need security cameras on the parking lot and someone monitoring the camera and someone monitoring the doors and the parking lot. They don't do what some other grocery stores do to protect the customers. This must change!

I shop there all the time and the parking lot is very dark at night. I'm going to think twice about going there now. There are too many other supermarkets to chose from and I'll chose one that is safer with a well lit parking lot! However, you always have to be aware of your surroundings.
