There will be a free 8-hour training class hosted by APD coming up on Thursday, April 5th at the James Dwyer Substation (11700 Montgomery just east of Tramway Blvd NE). In order to attend, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (505) 768-2220 and provide me with your name, title, mailing address and the location of the property you manage by Noon on March 1st. I am collecting a list of APD Foothills Area Command rental property managers/owners who are interested in attending the class to submit to the class coordinator. Whether you manage or own a duplex or a property with hundreds of units, this class is geared towards your needs regarding how to screen prospective residents, administrative and physical crime prevention techniques to create a safer living environment on property and the class will also cover several other areas such as Fair Housing, etc.
Property Crimes Reported in the Foothills Area Command on Wednesday, February 21st:
4 Stolen Vehicles: 1000-block of Chelwood Park Blvd NE, 10500-block of Montgomery Blvd NE, 11700-block of Candelaria Rd NE, 11200-block of Vistazo Pl SE.
1 Commercial Burglary: 100-block of Hotel Circle NE.
2 Residential Burglaries: 3700-block of Mary Ellen St NE and 6100-block of Imperata St NE.
4 Auto Burglaries: 700-block of Stephen Moody St SE, 800-block of Grace St NE, 12700-block of Central Ave SE, 3300-block of Juan Tabo Blvd NE. Entries were by damaging a door lock and breaking a window; the remainder were unforced entries (left the vehicle unlocked, left the driver’s window rolled down). Items left inside vehicles that were stolen: Driver’s license, Social Security card, ATM card, a wallet, two purses.
What’s the quick take-away? Lock up your vehicle and remove purses, wallets, IDs, etc. when you exit. If you must absolutely leave a wallet or purse in the vehicle and can’t bring it with you when you park, you may reduce your odds of being a victim a little bit by locking those items in the trunk before you arrive at your destination.
Be safe! Jill Garcia, Crime Prevention Specialist / ICPS, NCPS – APD, Foothills Area Command
