November Crime Report 15th District PSA1

A wise person, Jamie Fader (Assistant Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at Temple), told me that crime has a season and November seems to prove that point.  Crime is down, along with the temps.  Do we have fair weather crooks in Frankford?   It looks like it.

However don’t let your guard down, burglars do know you are going to be getting lots of new stuff for holidays and they want you to share it with them.

When you get all that new stuff, make sure you record the serial numbers of any equipment that has one.  If the unthinkable does happen and it is lost through theft, that information makes it possible to reclaim the property if it is later pawned at a licensed pawn shop.

Joe Krause, President of the Northwood Civic suggests taking pictures of everything with your phone including the back where the serial numbers are.  That is really a great idea as long as you then store the pictures someplace safe like Dropbox.com or Google drive.

Below is a summary of the data and you can follow this link to the detailed report.
