The Northern Station February newsletter describes recent trends in neighborhood crime. There has been a 11% YTD decrease in violent crime and 32% YTD increase in property crime. Captain Greg McEachern has promised to have officers patrolling high target areas and address these thefts.
Captain McEachern offers 5 tips to reduce the likelihood that your vehicle will be broken into:
- Don’t leave valuable items in your car.
- Covering items with a blanket or other item doesn’t deter theft.
- Do not leave keys to your residence in the car.
- Lock your car!
- Please report any suspicious activity.
