We are so proud of the GPOKCID safety officers for their continued deliverance of good service to the public. They have faithfully applied themselves to improving safety as the year goes, which is clear in the significant lowering of criminal incidences this month.
Theft out of motor vehicles and cell phone theft are rivalling one another for the most common occurrence this month with 4 incidents each. These are both cases that can be solved through extra vigilance when hiding belongings and making sure to stay in a safe area. We especially encourage those that go out at night:
- Stay in a group of friends
- Try not to wait for an Uber in a secluded area
- Do not text while walking alone – this is when criminals tend to grab phones.
If you care about your community and would like to be part of our continued efforts to improve the area, why not become a board member? You can make a real impact and stay abreast of what’s happening in the area. All we need from you is attendance at four board meetings a year. Find out more information here.
