News from the Captain
As the weather gets warmer, residents are reminded to keep a watchful eye in their neighborhood. A good neighbor can be one of the best tools to fighting back against crime. Watchful eyes can spot criminals and alert police and the community to their presence. Remember to also keep an eye on vacant homes since they are targets for copper theft.
If you do see activity or someone that looks suspicious, call 911 with a description of the person and vehicle, including the tag number if possible. Follow this and other crime prevention tips to stay safe.
Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct's Community Outreach Team. Officers will then check on your location for any unusual activity while you are away.
If something suspicious does happen at your home, law enforcement will be able to quickly reach you or a local emergency contact from the information provided on the form.
