Crime Prevention Tips:  Please serve as extra ‘eyes’ on the block for your neighbors.  Our residential burglaries were discovered at 3:00 – 3:56 p.m. yesterday and one occurred within a 30-minute time frame from when the owner left the home and returned to the home.  We need citizens to report suspicious persons who appear to be casing homes to 242-COPS (2677) from a safe place; just provide the operator with the best description you can and the mode and direction of travel and an officer will be dispatched.  I am still seeing burglaries to unlocked homes and vehicles in the Foothills Area Command and I ask you to take the few extra seconds to check your homes and vehicles to make sure they are locked and that all items of value are removed from vehicles when you park and walk away.  This will help harden your targets, reduce the odds of being a victim, and help push the criminal element away from your block.  If you would like to form a Neighborhood Watch group or re-start one that has fizzled out, contact Steve Sink at 244-6644 and get a Starter Kit.  These groups are easy to set up and are a formal version of just being a good neighbor with the added bonus of getting a crime prevention lesson at the facilitation meeting and resources to help you get off to a good start.
