CRIME PREVENTION TIP OF THE WEEK – If a crime occurs – report it!
Everyone should consider it his/her responsibility to report crime. Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur.

If you don’t report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference. In many cases, it is the information provided by victims and witnesses that leads to the arrest of a criminal. So tell the police as much as you can, no fact is too trivial. The police need the eyes and ears of all citizens.
