Please report any incident including items stolen from cars or your yard, and any vandalism, even if it’s minor or you don’t think anything could be done about it.  It’s important for the police to have a record of all incidents so that they can identify patterns. This could also result in more police presence in our neighborhood at night which would discourage additional incidents.
