Crime must now be the most talked about topic of conversation between residents, second now to traffic and Express Lanes on 101.

The PAPD is completely out of touch. Nobody can keep their side yard gate locked all the time because meter readers need access.

The police are right--keeping your side gate locked is a really good idea. You can find out when the meter readers are coming and be sure the gate is unlocked on that day. Or, you can read the meters yourself and email the readings to the City. It's very easy. Having the gate locked cuts your risk considerably.

You can also read your own meter and submit online.

Stop this crime wave now! It happened again to a man with a child in the car last evening. Something must be done to stop this.
