Attached is the District 6 Crime Report for January, 2019. We continue to have less crime in our district, which is good for us. From the news we all know that many parts of Indianapolis have seen more crime, especially violent crime, but this currently is not the case in our area. In January we had 62 reported incidents. For the same month over the last three years we had: 2016 – 71; 2017 – 82; and 2018 – 79 incidents. As you can see this year has a pretty significant drop. We know that our Northwest District IMPD does a great job, but a lot of the credit also has to go to all of you. It is important to call 911 when you see or hear something suspicious. It is equally important to report to the non-emergency number if something has already happened or does not need immediate help. By being aware of your surroundings and following the many safety tips for both home and when you are out is helpful. Having a neighborhood Crime Watch is very useful.
“Coffee With a Cop” this month will be on Tuesday, March 19th, from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at the McDonalds, located on west 10th Street just east of Girls School Road (7236 W. 10th Street). This is a great chance to talk with the officers and the Commander and also let them know how much we appreciate all they do for us each day. You don’t have to stay the entire time, so if you only have a few minutes to drop in and say “Hello” they would really appreciate it. The attached flyer gives more information.
Please feel free to share this information with others throughout our district. You helping to spread the word is greatly appreciated. Hopefully I will see you at one or both of the above events. Remember – if you see something suspicious, call 911. Don’t hesitate reporting something that doesn’t seem right to you.
