There were 26 reports of theft from an automobile and 74 reports of general theft. The general thefts could be a stolen purse from a shopping cart or items stolen from a yard. Financial transaction card crimes are always prevalent, along with shoplifting.

Property crimes affect many people across the nation. You can take easy precautions to decrease your chances of being a victim of a property crime.

You can help protect yourself from being a victim of crime by always securing your property. We all need to keep our doors locked and never leave valuables in your vehicle. If you hear or see suspicious people or noises, please call 911 and report it. Record the serial numbers on your bicycles, electronics and firearms. This aids law enforcement in tracking stolen items and holding those who stole the item responsible.

Superior police officers also do traffic enforcement and respond to many other types of incidents. In the month of August, Superior police officers made 387 traffic stops. We have been working on a new system for the public to see law enforcement incidents in the city of Superior. Raidsonline.com is a web site where you can see different incidents throughout Superior. We have had a couple small programing issues with it, but for the most part it is up and running.
