Foothills Area Command Crime Prevention: April 11, 2014

Post  Admin on Mon Apr 14, 2014 7:16 am

Received from APD:

Foothills Area NA/ HOAs, Neighborhood Watch Block Captains, Crime Free
Multi-Housing Rental Property Management Teams and Community

Please feel free to share this crime prevention information to reduce your
odds of being a victim of crime.
Foothills Area Command:

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month - I have Child Safety fliers and
brochures in the Foothills Substation lobby for the public to learn how to
keep kids safe. We are open Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
Speeding and Racing on Our Streets - I've had reports of this type of
activity in normally quiet areas. Please report any speeding or drag
racing to 242-COPS (2677). I've got some requests in for extra patrols
and some other things that should help reduce this problem and possibly
get some cites issued.

Slow Down Albuquerque Signs - Come by the Foothills Substation
and pick up a free "Slow Down Albuquerque" sign and stand to post in
your yard. The sign sends a message that your block won't tolerate this

Residential Burglaries in the Foothills - Keep practicing crime prevention
techniques and working together block by block. Start a communication
system for staying in touch with each other. Consider forming a
Neighborhood Watch or re-igniting a fizzled group. Call me or Steve Sink
at 924-3600 to learn more.

I still see patterns of residential burglars entering homes via the back of
the home and removing screens/ windows or kicking in back doors to
gain entry. There are lots of anti-lift/ anti-slide/ additional locks on the
market for windows and sliding glass doors - see what works for your
lifestyle. Remove rocks or items that could be used to break French
doors or sliders.

Build awareness on your block about anyone trying to get over walls or
gates or fencing to access the back of a neighbor's home. Call 242-COPS
(2677) if it looks suspicious - your calls help our officers make arrests!
Auto Burglaries - Foothills shows a significant drop.
Victims are continuing to leave vehicles unlocked and bags, wallets,
purses and GPS units left in unattended, unlocked vehicles are being
stolen. A little prevention by locking up and removing valuables when
you exit the vehicle can make a big difference.

Rental Property Information - I have had 2 or 3 cases of rent being stolen
from drop boxes and 6 reported from a neighboring Area Command. The
offenders are 'fishing' through the drop box openings to pull out checks
and money orders with home-made tools.
Here are few tips to help you:

• Never accept cash payments. This is risky for you (robbery target),
and your residents.
• Research drop boxes that secure deposits from theft.
• Limit accepting rental payments to office hours.
• Offer on-line payment plans and direct deposit methods.
• Inform your security patrols so they can adjust patrols accordingly.

Crime Free Multi-Housing Phase I Workshop for Managers/Owners
We filled the room yesterday and great information was provided to the
rental management community. The information on gang recognition,
narcotics, Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED)
principles, the CFMH program, screening residents and other tools will
help you build safer rental communities.

• CFMH-certified properties need to inform me of any new team
members within 2 weeks of hire, and
• Team members who have not attended the workshop have 6
months from date of hire to attend
• If you or your team members have attended the workshop in the
past 5 years - thanks for adding to your tool box!

Next class: Thursday, October 9th from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
At the Foothills Substation, 12800 Lomas Blvd NE

Contact Laura Kuehn at 256-2050 to request an invitation letter
Contact me at 323-4644 to let me know who wants to attend from the
Foothills Area Command (east of Eubank in city limits)

One recommendation shared yesterday was to join your community's
Neighborhood Association - you are stakeholders in your community.
See our-department/ office-of-neighborhoodcoordination.
Get active and participate in your residents' community!
