There has been an uptick in break-ins, all over town, but there has not been a lot of reporting on it, which is a real shame. Once people know that their neighborhoods are being targeted, they can take steps to prevent their homes from being broken into.* GPD has a website that you can use to search for crimes in your area. It is not nearly as fancy and nice as some but is serviceable. I think the police department is doing a great job (except about keeping us informed about crime waves) but we need to do our part to protect ourselves.* Here are some basics: keep your doors and windows locked — lock the doors behind you even if you are outside in the yard, keep your garage door closed if you are not right outside, replace the standard screws that came with your deadbolt with 3″ screws, trim bushes back from your house.
