The only way we can really STOP crime is to convict the people who perpetrate it! People need to get INVOLVED and begin to report suspicious activity - wherever it is! Our Police do the best they can - however generally they INVESTIGATE the results of the crime after it has happened. WE TOGETHER CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY GETTING INVOLVED!
