Police Weekly Incident Report: March 18 - 24
You will see in this Weekly Incident Report, we had one theft and one attempted theft from unlocked vehicles last week. As the weather gets warmer, we anticipate these types of incidents will occur more frequently. Last year, 20% of our Part 1 crimes involved thefts from vehicles. By simply removing valuables and locking car doors, we can make a significant impact on Clayton’s crime statistics and the overall safety of our neighborhoods.
