Attached is our monthly District 6 Crime Report for the month of August. With 90 incidents that means we had over 40 less incidents this month that we had during May (148), June (132), and July (133). I am hoping that the biggest reason for this number coming back down is that everyone is being much more aware of their surroundings and taking precautionary measures at home and with their vehicles. Unfortunately, we seem to peak during the summer months when school is out and the weather is nice. As you look over the map, please note your area and that close by you. Think about if there is anything you can do to make your neighborhood safer, or keep it from getting more incidents than what is occurring: Do you have a crime watch? Do you talk about things to make your neighborhood safer at your HOA or other neighborhood meetings? Do you do what you can to make yourself less likely to be a victim of a crime? Do you report things that don’t look right to you to 911?
Last month I shared a couple of emails I had received from some victims of crimes. This month I had some others share their stories with me as well, and I appreciate those who have shared. I am not going to print them this month, but may do so again in the future.
Just a reminder – if you notice something in your neighborhood, in the park, at a store, in a parking lot, etc. that does not look right to you, report it! Call 911 when you think something may be happening or something is suspicious. By calling 911 you may help prevent something from happening or help get a criminal caught in the act. Never hesitate in calling 911. No matter where you are – If you see something, say something! Call 911.
We can all help make District 6 a safer place to live, work, and play by working together, using good common sense, and taking precautions to make ourselves safer, and by calling 911 when something does not look right to you.
