Our community has suffered, and so many people have been devastated by the flooding that took place June 19-20. I have heard many people describe their situation as: “It could have been worse.” Many people are staying positive and doing what they need to do to get things back in order. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone.
Crime has not stopped with the closed roads, detours, washed out bridges or flooded basements. The city is still seeing incidents of thefts from cars and there have been numerous reports of thefts from yards.
People have placed their belongings in their yards to clean and dry out. These items belong to the homeowner. If anyone without the owner’s permission removes property from a yard, it is theft. Please call 911 if you see car prowlers or unknown people on yours or your neighbor’s property.
The Superior Police Department is also looking for citizens who would be interested in being involved with the National Night Out crime prevention event.
The planning of this event comes at a time when we all need each other. We need to know our neighbors and lookout for each other. The police department is looking for individuals or groups who would host a neighborhood gathering for National Night Out. National Night Out is a crime prevention and community partnership event.
For more information, you can go to www.nationalnightout.org.
If you are interested in hosting an event contact me at the number below.
Community Policing Officer Bonnie Beste shares information with the community. You can leave a voicemail for her at (715) 395-7401. Her column will appear on the first Friday of each month in the Superior Telegram.
