Take steps to fight crime

It happens every night all over the city. Prowlers checking for unlocked cars and fence gates. Stealing what they can to support drug habits. In fact, we look online every day at the” Arlington Crime Watch” site and find the majority of the crime is within two to three blocks of the police station! Crime of opportunity is everywhere!
Our community, in Arlington, has had cars drop off teams of two persons. They knock on doors, get no answer, and try to break in. We watched this, in broad daylight, just next door, and when approached they ran off.
We all, as neighbors and fellow citizens, need to be aware of who belongs in our neighborhoods. Question unfamiliar vehicles and watch their progress through and out of your area. Keep your cars clean of valuables in the seats, and always locked. Gates should be locked and motion lights installed. As heroin use is up 50 percent, so is the need for crime to buy it. Be aware, be ready, be proactive.
Lastly, report the crime! Several robberies of our neighbors cars were not called in. How can the police know the pattern of criminals if they are not informed of the crime!
