Hello Town Creek Residents! Now that the grass is green and the weather outside is nice, the bad guys are more comfortable spending time casing the neighborhood. Please be vigilant as we all spend more time outdoors, and never hesitate to call our officers regarding any suspicious activity. There have been quite a few reports of strangers walking in the alleys. We all know why they are there, so let’s keep the garage doors down and the gates locked!
In addition to the many alley walkers, there have been several instances of solicitors in our area that have turned out to not be solicitors after all. Be very careful who you speak with at your front door and never let them in your house.
