This great little piece came to us via the Buckner Terrace neighborhood:
1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.
2. Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.
3. Love those flowers. That tells me you have taste… and taste means there are nice things inside. Those yard toys your kids leave out always make me wonder what type of gaming system they have.
4. Yes, I really do look for newspapers piled up on the driveway. And I might leave a Continue reading

The best way to take an active part in crime prevention is to participate in a crime watch in which each person becomes more alert and aware of what is going on within the area. Participation in a crime watch is not an activity that requires a lot of time. It means only that each person adopts a more observant attitude on a daily basis. Neighbors will get to know each other better, and as a result, will become more aware of strange cars, persons or circumstances which might be a danger and require calling the police. The following guidelines have proven to be successful:
Get to know your neighbors. Know their names and be able to identify them and their vehicles by sight.
Maintain a map or block directory of the immediate neighborhood with names, addresses, emails and phone numbers.
Make the home as burglar proof as possible.
Mark all property for identification by using the Operation ID Program.
Be observant and watch over neighbors’ homes, especially when they are not home or are out of town.
Write down license plate numbers and descriptions of suspicious looking vehicles and/or good descriptions of any suspicious persons. Immediately report them to the police at 911.
Report information that may be helpful to your Crime Watch Chairperson.
Call the neighborhood voicemail (if you have one) on a regular basis to keep informed.
Check your Nextdoor internet communications regularly.
Educate children in crime prevention and teach respect for law enforcement officers.
Volunteer to help your crime watch organization in any way that you can, whether it involves your time or financial support.
