Lock your gates. Don't leave your windows ajar. Glad he didn't break in.

Does the PAPD still have its Neighborhood Watch Program whereby neighbors are advised to keep an eye on suspicious activities (i.e. strangers roaming about the locale) & contacting the police department to investigate?

Crescent Park due to its close proximity to EPA & 101 has always been a potential area for residential burglaries & the same can be said of the Amarillo/Greer Park neighborhood due to its ease of getaway access via Oregon Expressway to 101.

Shocking! Our elected leaders empty the prisons, reduce penalties for crimes, remove requirements for bail and now reduce our police budget. How could this lead to more crime? Just shocking...

@BPObserver - I'm sure it has at least something to do with the fact that due the country's poor response to COVID, we're still seeing record numbers of cases, which means that the country needs to stay in semi lockdown. As a result, people have lost their jobs and some turn to crime.
