A message from Senior Lead Officer Maria Gray:
The numbers look good in terms of crime trends for the area. I would imagine that since I’m always complaining about people leaving things in their cars it’s only right that I give kudos when it appears that the numbers of break-ins are declining! (Or did I just jinx us?) So keep up the efforts to always, always remove or hide any items within your cars when parked and remind your family and guests to do the same. Also, the patrol officers for the area are dedicated to the area and I would encourage everyone to give a wave or hello or holler out a kind word -- officers hear far too many unkind words in this line of work! Thank you and please stay vigilant!!
