Hello Town Creek residents! As the weather becomes more pleasant and we spend more time outdoors with recreational activities or even working in the yard, please be aware of open garage doors, gates, too sheds etc. Although I am very pleased to inform you that crime in the neighborhood was very low in April, we have had an increase in strangers walking the alleys. The predominant crimes committed in our area are crimes of opportunity, so please do not provide the opportunity, and report any suspicious activity.
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.
Our patrol officers were provided a new phone this month, as the previous phone was having occasional issues.

The area allocation of regular duty officers is based on recent 911 call data so please do not hesitate to call. Stay safe out there!
