With the colder mornings, we are seeing an uptick in "puffers" - vehicles left running unattended. Not surprisingly, we are also seeing an increase in Motor Vehicle Thefts. Just this morning, we had two puffer thefts and one attempted. Please, help us out and never leave your vehicle running unattended. It is against the law (we can ticket you for doing it), but is it worth the risk of losing your vehicle?

A friendly message from one of our Animal Management Officers: They're so innocent, they have no idea what's coming later. Hordes of people running around and screaming, mostly small humans with unsettling energy. They'll have creepy costumes and scary props, and the doorbell just won't stop ringing! For those of you lucky enough to have social pets you may not have to worry about trick-or-treaters getting bitten, but you probably don't want to send it trick-or-treaters home with an extra pet if yours decides to run after them. Please put on your pets collar and tags now! Is your microchip information up-to-date? Do you have a safe place your pet won't be scared or able to run away? Spend your evening enjoying the leftover Halloween candy rather than searching all night for your missing four-legged friend! Happy Halloween from Arvada Animal Management! #neighborsconnected

Storytime! Animal Management Officer Whittle received a call on Tuesday about a stray dog. Although she searched the area, the dog was nowhere to be found. Yesterday, she was dispatched to the same area. She caught a dog going into a yard out of the corner of her eye. It was the reported stray. There was dog food and water in the backyard so she assumed he lived there... but when she contacted the resident, it was not their dog. She caught the evasive little guy and while driving him to the shelter, decided to check Craigslist. There was "Teddy," who was reported missing on October 22nd. He had been out five days! It was time to get him home. Here's Teddy's Daddy when AMO Whittle dropped him off. We love a happy ending! #neighborsconnected

Have you heard about Arvada PD's new teen site, It is designed to assist them with learning the law, getting safety tips and finding help when needed. Although it is a website, is designed to function on a cell phone like an app, from drop down menus to telephone dialing functionality. This design enables students to access the site easily from their mobile devices. Categories on the site include bullying, dating, drugs and drinking, graffiti & stealing, guns and weapons and rules of the road when driving. We hope you'll share it with the teens in your life! #neighborsconnected

Halloween Safety Tips Halloween is the start of the fall holiday season and the Arvada Police want to help make your holiday safe and fun for everyone. With common sense and these safety tips, this spooky fun celebration will be enjoyed by parents, kids and neighbors. • Never, ever go into a stranger´s house or even ring their door for treats unless your parents are with you and say that it's okay. • Be careful when you cross a street. Make sure to look in both directions and make sure that there are no cars coming. • If you are an older kid or young teen, and going out with friends, make sure that your parents know where you are going and with whom you are going. • Parents, the best plan is to go with your kids and watch out for them as they are trick or treating, but if that isn’t possible, know the route your kids will be taking. Let them know that they are to check in with you every hour, by phone or by stopping back at home. • Costumes should be made of flame retardant material. If they are homemade, make sure and use either a fire retardant spray or fabric that has been treated with fire retardant. • Make sure your child's costume includes reflector strips, a flash light or light stick to make them more visible at night. This will assure that they are seen by drivers and that you can keep an eye on them as well if they get ahead of you while trick or treating. • If your child is wearing a mask, make sure that the eye holes are big enough to see not only in front but peripherally as well. You may have to cut them open further yourself. If so, use some black or gray grease paint around the eye socket to cover skin.

We are honored that number 52 chose our School Resource Officer. Keep up the great work, Officer Walter. #neighborsconnected

Officers are required to qualify on firearms once a year to maintain their Police Officers Standards and Training (POST) certification. At the Arvada Police, we require them to qualify three times a year. This is just one of dozens of exercises our officers participate in for qualification.

Did you catch that spectacular sunrise this morning? Thank you to Bob Fifer, Arvada City Council for grabbing these beautiful pictures of it at the Lake Arbor Community Station. #neighborsconnected
