Thank you to the alert Foothills community member who called APD yesterday to report seeing a male climbing into a window at a neighbor’s home. Your vigilance and willingness to call APD from a safe place to report this activity was valuable to our officers and our community. This is why I stress forming Neighborhood Watch groups!
I can provide you with training on what to watch for, how to report crime and be a good witness and leave you with some great information to get crime prevention-savvy. Neighborhood Watch groups help our officers keep you safe and help your communities, one block at a time.
Get a Starter Kit through APD Crime Prevention Manager Steve Sink (244-6644) and we can help you get started or re-ignite a lapsed Neighborhood Watch group. Call me if you have any questions – 323-4644.
Jill Garcia, Crime Prevention Specialist, APD/Foothills Area Command
