Ya know Patch, I would not give kudos to a thief by placing " successful burglaries" in the headline. Wait until the scum is caught then post a headline "Successful Capture" instead. Just saying :)

I hope that the new chief is not afraid of technology and can use it to keep the residents up to date on crime like this. We need to know about crime in our neighborhoods right away not days or weeks later.

Yes. We need to know ASAP. Hope the scum gets caught and rots in jail!

You need police to drive the cars. Police keep retiring, but we haven't hired in years. Or promoted.....
