Property crime is up everywhere, including our neighborhood.  Several times a week, cars in our neighborhood are broken into and so are our homes. With the upcoming Stock Show and Rodeo and Super Bowl, we can expect the trend to continue.  As long as the unemployment rate is high, there will be thieves on our streets looking for opportunities to take advantage of careless property owners.

On Monday January 17 at 6:30 p.m. at our regular AHNA membership meeting, Neighborhood Patrol Officer Teri Majors will analyze the crime trends in our neighborhood and lead us through a series of easy steps to take to protect ourselves from becoming another entry in the daily crime report.

Also at the meeting will be a representative from the police department who will generate RAPIDS labels encoded with the barcode of an individual’s driver’s license.  The tiny labels can be adhered to your valuables and have become a very successful tool in tracing stolen items back to their owner. The RAPIDS labels are very difficult to remove once they’ve been stuck on to an object.  They’re free and an ounce of prevention can save you a ton of heartache and inconvenience.
