Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods 2017 was a great success. Thank you to those who had parties in your neighborhoods. We had a great time visiting with you. If you have any photos of your G.A.I.N. party you'd like to share, please email them to Stay Safe!

What does shoplifting, theft (value of items/s less than $250), Identity Theft, Hit & Run and Lost Property have in common? These are all non-emergency crimes where a report can be made online when it's convenient for you!

This is John and Betty Draper. Betty is 90 years old and about 6 months ago she felt inspired to begin going to Goodwill stores and collecting baby dolls that she then refurbishes. She spends hours detangling the hair, washing, and making new clothes for these dolls. At the beginning of the summer she donated her first batch of 12 dolls to the Mesa Family Advocacy Center to be given to victims of child physical and sexual abuse. This first batch did not stay on our shelves long at all and last week she brought a new batch of dolls refurbished with love for the victims that come through our doors. Thank you John and Betty, your love is felt and shared.

This outstanding young man decided he wanted to create blankets for us (Mesa Family Advocacy Center) as part of his Eagle Scout project. He and a group of 40 volunteers devoted 400 hours and created 75 blankets from old PD uniforms. He wants the victims we serve to know that the police care about them and this was his way to create something lasting and positive for the victims we assist at the MFAC! Thank you Jimmy! #eaglescoutproject

Thank you Troop 792 of the Boy Scouts of America. One of their troop members, as an Eagle Scout Project, chose to organize and implement a project painting and numbering the parking spaces at our Mesa Family Advocacy Center/Criminal Investigation Division. This project is greatly appreciated by all the staff members who work there.

Last chance to let the City of Mesa know your ideas for Mesa's future!

Treats. Before your children start eating their stash of goodies, check for holes or loose wrappers. Pour powdered candy into a container and look for discoloration or lumps. Don't eat opened candy. Wash fruit, then cut into bite-sized pieces. Soft candy should also be cut into pieces. Homemade treats should not be eaten unless you are absolutely sure they came from a safe source. Unfortunately, things to happen so it's better to be safe than end up with a trip to the emergency room.

Here is a great interview with Matthew Purnell. Matthew participated in our Youth Leadership Academy in 2016. Nice job Matthew!

Tricks. Don't play pranks. Damaging other people's property is a crime. Don't end up like these two. (second photo didn't post; see comments.)
