In the Foothills Area Command we have many property crimes that can be prevented by locking up and removing items of value from vehicles.  Securing your own property is one of the easiest ways to dramatically lower your odds of being a property crime victim. 

Thank you to the people who decorated our Foothills substation over the weekend.  What a wonderful way to start the work week to walk into our substation and see blue ribbons, posters and banners!  Thanks for taking the time and effort to do this for us at the Foothills Area Command.

Chili Dog with A Cop on Friday at the APD Academy was a big success with about 500 chili dogs purchased and $3,100 raised for the family of Shaylee Boling and her mother, who both died from their injuries when a driver fleeing in a stolen vehicle crashed into the family’s vehicle in the Foothills Area Command a few weeks ago.  Thanks to those who worked so hard to pull this event off and to those who participated and donated. 

Have a good week and be safe,
