As we continue to see local property crime in our neighborhoods, I have arranged to have this Crime Alert sign produced that I’m making available to District 1 residents or businesses, which you can use as a sign for your lawn or posting near the back part of your property, at no cost. Combined with our own efforts to watch our neighbors property, we can improve on reporting and reducing crime and thefts. The sign is available, one per property, by sending me an email with your street address. Supplies of the signs are due by Oct. 20.
