Crime Prevention:  I am seeing a trend in the residential burglaries of entry into homes by removing the screen to a window at the back of the home and vacant homes (for sale) being targeted.  If you see anyone attempting to get entry via side gates or walls to the backs of homes and they don’t appear to belong there, call 242-COPS (2677) from a safe place and report it to APD and then alert your Neighborhood Watch Block Captain.

You don’t have a Neighborhood Watch group on your block?  They are easy to form!  Call Steve Sink at 244-6644 to ask for a Starter Kit and you will be on your way to learning what to watch for, how to report it safely and how you can help your community and local law enforcement.
