Last Night’s Workshop Wednesday at the Foothills / Property Crimes on Wednesday May 25th

Last night’s Workshop Wednesday at the Foothills, “Gun Safety for Families” — Thanks to everyone who attended the workshop and to Detective Deloris Sanchez for her terrific presentation.

Now that school is out, it’s a great time to sit down as a family and have that conversation about firearms and the power of the firearm with kids and teens if you own a firearm.  It’s a good time to review your safety plan regarding your weapon(s), ammo and make sure that any firearms are included in your property inventory with made, model, caliber, serial number, etc.

I made 8 extra packets that have crime prevention information, gun safety information, a resources page and a trigger lock.  If you missed the workshop and would like a packet, please stop by the Foothills Substation at 12800 Lomas Blvd NE anytime in person (first come, first served) Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. and ask for a packet.  They are at the front desk with our staff, who will be happy to provide you with a packet. 

Reminder:  In honor of Memorial Day, the Foothills Substation will be closed on Monday, May 30th.

Property Crime in the Foothills on Wednesday, May 25th:

5 Stolen Vehicles:  700-block of Eubank Blvd SE, 12000-block of Skyline Rd NE, 300-block of Dorado SE, 10300-block of Walker Ne, 12300-block of Lomas Blvd NE.

2 Residential Burglaries:  10800-block of Cochiti SE, 1200-block of Muriel NE.

1 Auto Burglary: 11900-block of Indian School Rd NE.

Crime Prevention Reminder:  Memorial Day is coming up — many of us may start those yard and home projects and it’s important to remember to keep those garage doors closed, do not leave ladders or tools or other items sitting outside unattended and to secure doggie doors and other access points into your home.

If you decide to use the local trails in the Foothills Area Command, remember to lock your vehicle, roll up the windows (no ‘venting’ the car please), remove all items of value and leave nothing visible in the vehicle while you enjoy your bike ride, dog walk, run, walk or picnic.  Trail head parking areas are targets for auto burglaries, to unlocked vehicles and to locked vehicles (breaking windows to access the vehicle and what’s inside). 

Stay safe,
