by Diane Hettrick – categories and Trends are mine – the rest are from our police – who could make this stuff up?
Trends: what an odd week. No burglaries. Only one professional car prowl. The only 911 hang-up was from a pay phone and probably just a dumb kid impulse. And only one false alarm – not like LFP at all – I can only think that some reports didn’t get turned in and I’ll see 12 false alarms next week. I like the 16 year old who called 911 and got a photo of the guy in her driveway – great presence of mind.
Turn ‘em in
