Weekly Crime Tip: Have an alarm installed on your vehicle that has an audible alarm. Place stickers on the vehicle windows indicating it is alarmed. A visual indicator such as a flashing red light will also tell any potential burglar to stay away.

  1. I get the one for Highland Terrace and bordering neighborhoods.

    I don't find them scary, but then again I have been a scanner dork since, uhhh, about 1978 when the technology was pretty primitive. There's a lot going on under the hood and it's possible to be aware of it without getting sucked into the darkness.

  2. Yeah you'll realize lots of 'petty' crime happens all over the place. Mostly residential burglary or theft from vehicle.

  3. I don't find the reports very useful myself. They are not compiled in a way that shows any kind of pattern. The incidents are all over the territory, locations are indicated as undefined numbered areas, and the lingo is in cop-ebonics. One would have to be some kind of geek wana-be to make any sense of it. I think they are wasting our money.

  4. Security tip: extra security at no extra charge. Most car alarms come with a "Panic Button" on the key fob. If the key fob is placed at one's bedside at night, if there is a break-in, all the resident needs to do to add a very effecive level of alert, is hit the car alarm's panic button. The racket outside, altering the neighbors, will throw a the intruder into a "Plan B" mode.

  5. Tom,

    I prefer the sound of a shotgun being cocked. It tests the sphincter muscles of the intruders.

  6. There's an app for that! My grandfather has it on his iPhone and he said in the dead of night it sounds pretty real. Real enough to make someone second guess how bad they want your stereo.

  7. Cocking a real shotgun is more satisfying =)

  8. I understand what several commenters are trying to refer to about a "shotgun being cocked". I believe they are referring to the sound of a pump shotgun being used to chamber a load,-- a metallic schnick, schnick, truly a chilling sound-- after which it can be fired. Or one can simply already have a round in the chamber, where one can simply fire it as warranted. (Yes I AM aware of children that may be in the house, and the problems of loaded guns. Mine are gone, but they and their friends who visited them were taught about firearms --what they were and what they did, and why they shouldn't handle them.

    My understanding is most shotguns cannot be safely stored with a round in the chamber the way a modern sidearm can.

    I do not consider residential burglarly a petty crime.
