Car breakin

Just a friendly reminder, keep your car doors locked at night.  My husband forgot to lock ours last night and now I'm waiting for the police to arrive.  Luckily, nothing was there to be taken, just a major inconvenience!

Sorry to hear...
Can you give us an idea as to what area, street or portion of Providence this occurred in? 

thanks

What are the odds...isn't it something how one time you can forget to lock something up, and there would just happen to be someone around with the mindset to take advantage of it?  I guess you can pretty much figure that there is always someone around with the mindset to victimize someone if the opportunity presents itself.  Sad :(

We're on Cookson...and by the way, the police still have not bothered to come.

Just curious if the police ever stopped by.  I am a little disappointed with them.  We had an incident back in June involving a lost child (that we found!) and it took the cops an hour to respond.  Their excuse?  It was a shift change.  I'm sorry, but when a person finds a child, shouldn't they respond sooner?  And as you were victimized, you'd think they would send someone out within a few hours.  Our police suck.

Not sure how many people know about this site, but I find it interesting.  It's Crime Reports at https://www.crimereports.com.  The police log all their calls there, and they're posted on a map.  It's a Google map, so you can zoom in to street level.  And, after you go to your desired area on the map, it will default to that area the next time you go to the site.  You can narrow the listed calls down by date range and type of crime...everything from barking dogs to sex offender's locations  Click on the small icons to see the date and time of the call and the description of the call.  It's a great way to find out if there are any crime sprees going on in your area.  Speaking of car break-ins, there seems to be a number of them showing up lately.

I've attached a screen shot.  The 'TV's are theft to vehicles...all in the last 3 days!

There was a call on my caller i.d. from the City of Elgin at 10:54am on 8/28.  I'm sure glad it wasn't a real emergency!  Needless to say, after they wasted my time on Monday, I did not follow up.  I'm just always checking and double checking doors now.
