What was stolen in one weekend (Fri/Sat/Sun) in the Foothills Area Command?  A back pack in the robbery to the individual; jewelry, a dog, a loaded 38 caliber and a loaded 45 caliber gun, a loaded shotgun, a TV, a laptop, an iPad, $197 in cash in the residential burglaries.  About $1,000 worth of property from two unlocked vehicles parked at the same address, work IDs, multiple documents, a vehicle title, multiple vehicle registration and insurance papers, a wallet, and various IDs left inside vehicles that were burglarized. 

Please review how you are securing weapons and what you leaving inside your vehicles.  Lock up.  Check your windows and screens to make sure they are properly secured.  Report suspicious persons to 242-COPS (2677) and then alert private security services if you have one where you live and your Neighborhood Watch Block Captain for the block so others will be aware.  Strengthen doors at the home with long screws that go deep into the jamb and check strike plates and deadbolts — doors settle over time and alignment can be off if this occurs, weakening your door.  Start off the week by reviewing these items around the house and what you are leaving behind in a vehicle.  Clear out the vehicle when you leave it somewhere for servicing too — most of us forget this and do not think to consider if the business is burglarized and your vehicle is targeted.  These are all small things that add up to big things with prevention techniques.  Your aim is to control what you can and these small tips will help you do that.

Have a great week ahead and be safe,
