The 17th District Police would like to continue to advise residents of an increase in home burglaries in the area. Please be on the lookout for any suspicious activity, particularly unknown people loitering in front of houses during daylight hours when many neighbors may be at work.
The police request that you call 911 if you notice anything suspicious. Please be sure to give the operator know as much information about the situation as possible when you call, including number and descriptions of individuals, clothing, distinguishing features, etc.
As always, please continue to submit 311 or See Click Fix complaints for broken streetlights, vacant homes, squatters, or any other issues that may be facilitating additional crimes.
Additional town watch and safety advisories can be found on the 17th District Captain's blog.
