NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH REPORT
No pursuit, No patrol, No confrontation, JUST WATCH and REPORT.
During the last half of JULY to the present date of JULY 28, 2017 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics listed on the OCSO web site we have had 5 reported residential burglaries. One in the 2xxxx block of MACON, One in the 19xxxx block of RALSTON, One in the 19xxxx block of PEABODY, One in the 2xxxx block of QUINELLA and One just now in the 23xx block of ALABASTER. Not a single phone call to me regarding the events by the victims. As a result I have no additional information regarding method of entry or items taken. Additionally we had one auto burglary in the 24xx block of Abalone and a couple tire issues one on Macon and one on Ballard. I am certain that we have had other crimes that have not made it to the web site nor have the victims called me as I have requested.
This year in Wedgefield the NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH NIGHT OUT is to be held on Tuesday AUGUST 1 and Tuesday OCTOBER 3. The published theme this year is “Making Time for Ridding Crime.” We are tasked with coming up with a celebration theme that relates and I have selected “MAKE TIME to MEET and GREET your NEIGHBOR a Neighborly event” as our theme. This is something we should already be doing; that is getting to know our neighbors. Remember the best crime prevention device known to man or woman is a “GOOD NEIGHBOR” and a good neighbor is one that knows what to do when things do not look right – they call OCSO. So on August 1st Turn the porch light on and lock the door and go next door to meet the neighbors. We will also do the same on October 3, 2017.
On a happy note EVELYN RODRIGUEZ PEREZ continues to keep our Wedgefield NHW Face Book page neighborly and smooth running with 1,576 MEMBERS with several in the Que.
Now let us all be good neighbors and make the effort to be observant and take appropriate action “SEE SOMETHING – SAY SOMETHING”
