Update on the Grove: Over the past two weeks, officers have been working hard to solve and crack down on break ins and criminal mischief. On Saturday, July 14th, residents awoke to finding streets/sidewalks painted and vehicles broken into. It was then reported that two school athletic buildings had been entered and equipment stolen. Officers worked fast to identify three juvenile males, make arrests, and recover stolen property. During the same night, additional vehicle break ins occurred that were unrelated to the other incidents. Officers used investigative techniques to identify a 19 year old male. An arrest was made and property was recovered. In both of these jncidents, officers were familiar with suspects from multiple previous incidents. A total of 21 breaking & entering charges have been filed along with 10 theft offenses and multiple criminal mischief offenses. We’d like to say our work is complete, but vehicle break ins are continuing to occur with the latest incidents happening last night. We remind everyone to lock their vehicle and report any suspicious activity.

**Community Release** Over the past several weeks, we have received much concern from our community members over recent break ins and theft of property incidents. Although, these types of crimes are not new to our city, the increased social media presence has brought greater attention to the cases. Therefore, we want to share some of the things we’ve been doing to resolve the issues. Most of the cases began at the end of the school year. It was determined that juveniles were the main suspects with most of the incidents occurring in the Sundowner & Prairie Meadow subdivisions. Our officers have done a great job of identifying the areas of concern and increasing their patrol. On one incident, a night shift patrolman discovered footprints in the early morning dew and was able to track multiple juveniles to a location. Vehicle break ins were later discovered and surveillance video helped to identify those same juveniles through the clothing description that the officer had witnessed. This case would have been hard to solve without the keen eye of the patrolman. At the request of Chief Workman, several officers then voluntarily gave up their day off and provided additional foot patrols of the subdivisions. On the first night of these extra patrols, officers apprehended the same juveniles wandering the streets again. In another incident, two of our night patrolman discovered a juvenile breaking into cars. After a foot pursuit, they apprehended the juvenile, charged him and released him back to parents (per Juvenile Court). In another incident, our foot patrol officers observed two juveniles breaking into residential property. Further investigation discovered that the same juveniles had broken into a vehicle and had stolen property. It is because of these officers’ great work that the incidents were discovered and quickly resolved. These are just a few examples of recent incidents. Since May 12, 2018, we have arrested 17 juveniles for Curfew Violation, Breaking & Entering, and Theft of Property.

A boil order is in effect for certain areas. See the post below.

Did you know that Prairie Grove has a sidewalk ordinance which restricts a sidewalk from being blocked by vehicles or other items? We understand the difficulty this creates for some residents when trying to park multiple vehicles in their driveway. However, all ordinances are passed by elected members of the community and then it falls to us for enforcement. Our officers will be enforcing this and other city ordinances during their normal patrol. Help us spread the word: "Don't block sidewalks."
