Daily Crime Prevention Tips & Property Crime on Monday, 3/7/16


1 Commercial Burglary: 10200-block of Comanche NE.

2 Residential Burglaries: 2800-block of Muriel NE, 1500-block of Tramway NE.

2 Auto Thefts: 10000-block of Menaul, 5900-block of Royal Oak NE.

Crime Prevention Tips:  Although the numbers are low, about half of the property crimes committed on Monday could have been prevented by securing homes and vehicles.  Lock up, check and double-check!  Locking up is so important in prevention — it sounds simple, but it cannot be emphasized enough.  Police officers cannot check your vehicles and homes to make sure they are locked up, and primarily act as responders to calls for service from victims reporting crime.  Just taking those few extra seconds can make a world of difference for the community.
