Knowing your neighbors and recognizing who does belong in your neighborhood and who does not belong there has proven to be very helpful for some community members. The neighbor that called into the department yesterday did two very important things correctly. 1) That person recognized that there was a suspicious situation, seeing someone who looked very out of place and possibly doing something that they shouldn’t have been doing. 2) They called the police and let officers respond to further evaluate and manage the situation. This is an excellent example of community involvement in identifying and acting on an unusual circumstance which resulted in the prevention of a neighborhood home burglary.
