Foothills Area Command Crime Prevention: June 27, 2014

I Recommend....
The Mayor and City Council want your input on the Community Policing Council. Learn more about your role in improving policing and community relations at http: / / www .cabg.gov and go to the Mayor's Office page to read about the Council. To fill out an application to be a part of the Community Policing Council go to:

http:/ / www.cabq .gov / mayor I community-policing-council-application. Tell your neighbors about this opportunity to be a part of the process!


Neighborhood Watch News: Congratulations!
Welcome the 10700-Block of Griffith Park in the Towne Park neighborhood as the Foothills Area Command's newest recognized Neighborhood Watch! Thank you to Helen M. for hosting a terrific meeting and volunteering to be Block Captain.

If you would like to start a Neighborhood Watch group on your block or re-start one that has fizzled, contact Steve Sink, Crime Prevention Manager, at 924-3600 to get a Starter Kit.


APD Operation Hope and Children's Cancer Fund of NM:
All APD substations are serving as drop off points for the community to drop off school supplies, backpacks and gift cards for K - 12 children to purchase school shoes for APS children in need. I suggest filling a backpack with school supplies and a gift card for a pair of shoes to have a complete donation all in 1 container (backpack).

The back-to-school drive is starting now and the Foothills Substation staff can collect your donations through Friday, August 1st.


Property Crime in the Foothills: Fri 6/ 20 - Thu 6/ 26:
Stolen Vehicles: Motorcycles and mopeds reported stolen in the Foothills in the past week. Consider VIN etching, alarms, parking in well-lit areas with good sight lines to your vehicle.

Foothills Substation Lobby Display: Auto theft prevention materials -Visit our lobby anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and help yourself to brochures and fliers on the display stand to learn how to reduce your odds of vehicle theft.

Residential Burglaries: Citizens are still leaving garage doors open - this past weekend alone we had a bicycle, tools and golf clubs stolen from open garages. Lock up! I don't want a citizen to be a victim of crime or come face to face with a criminal inside a garage - you do not know if these offenders are armed, on drugs, or violent. Protect yourself, your property and your family by locking up and keeping garages closed.


Auto Burglaries:
What items were stolen from unattended vehicles this week?
Wallets - Vehicle Insurance Papers - Vehicle Registrations -
Of the 3 auto burglaries over the past weekend in the Foothills, all 3 vehicles left doors unlocked or a window rolled down with valuables in the vehicle. The Foothills Area Command could have gone the entire weekend without any auto burglaries and we could have had 0 victims if citizens removed valuables and locked vehicles.

When paperwork and person information is stolen from a vehicle, it will most likely be used to commit another crime - identity theft or fraud.

We are hosting a workshop for the public to learn how toprotect yourself from Scams, Cons, Fraud and Id entity Theft - call me to reserve a seat.

"Scams, Cons, Fraud and Identity Theft”:
How to Protect Yourself' Workshop at the Foothills Substation We have 9 seats left for the workshop we are hosting on Thursday, August 28th from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Contact me at 323-4644 if you would like to attend; RSVPs are required due to limited seating.


About purses...
I saw 2 reports of purse-snatchings in the Foothills this week to females carrying purses. One victim also had a bag of groceries in her hands in addition to her purse when she was victimized. One incident occurred at a very busy 'big box' store and the other on the sidewalk.

Ladies - please refrain from carrying purses and only carry what you need to accomplish your errand (ID, credit/debit card, house key or car key, etc). Try to keep the items needed to complete your errand in your pocket. Practice 'situational awareness' and scan your surroundings before you leave a business and when you exit your vehicle. Ask for an escort to your vehicle when leaving a store. Avoid getting loaded down with too many bags or parcels at one time when walking to your vehicle from shopping. Go with friend. If you don't feel safe, leave and return another time.

To learn more, see "How to Report a Crime and Be a Good Witness" and "Personal Safety" on the city web site in the APD Crime Prevention section at: www.cabq.gov / police / crime-prevention -safety
