Reminder about reporting crime on a web site/social media chat room

To our APD Foothills Area Command web site subscribers/visitors,

I just wanted to remind our readers that if you see a crime in progress or suspicious behavior, report it to 242-COPS or 911 as appropriate and call from a place where you are safe.  Provide the best description you can to the APD operator.

Posting information on a crime you are seeing occur on this web site (or nextdoor.com) does not get an officer dispatched to your location.  As a contributor who posts but does not see commentary on either web site, the information is not being relayed where it needs to go in a timely fashion.

I ask that you continue to serve as extra eyes and ears on the block for our police officers, but report suspicious or criminal behavior directly to 242-COPS or 911 from a safe place first.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Jill Garcia, Crime Prevention Specialist / ICPS, APD – Foothills Area Command
