14th Police District Crime Prevention Specialist Available

Property crimes continue to plague the City, and our community’s not immune. The 14th Police District would like you to know that there’s a Crime Prevention Specialist on staff. Officer Hall will come to your home to assess your vulnerabilities and offer suggestions. She’ll help individual residents, or cover a whole block, or speak with your Town Watch/Block Watch group. You can reach her at 215-685-2148. The 14th urges you to keep your doors and windows locked, to trim shrubs that block visibility from the street (allowing burglars to hide from sight), to avoid leaving attractive electronics and other valuables in plain sight in your car and to call 911 if you see anything that looks suspicious.
