Why didn't the City share details of last week's home invasion? Why didn't the Police Department use a text notification or other communication methods to notify neighbors? (Feb. 6, 2024)

The incident referred to in the Community Comment was an attempted burglary on Golf Terrace. (A “home invasion” involves an act of violence against a person.) To ensure the integrity of the investigation, the Police Department cannot release many details of the incident at this time. However, on Feb. 2, the City issued a press release to update the community about the recent burglary trend and to offer crime prevention tips. 

The Police Department is currently working on solutions to provide more consistent and timely alerts to our community. More details will be shared soon.
