Call to order
Laurie Keleher - called to order at 7:00 PM. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Capt. Wiseman – Crime stats were presented. A lot of the Christmas gifts that ended up in cars (ie. GPS units, cell phones, laptops, chargers, removable radios, clothing, address books, etc.) end up getting stolen. “Put your junk in the trunk – Lock it up or lose it” campaign is starting. It is usually the items that don’t get put in the trunk when leaving the car. It literally takes less than 10 seconds to break a car window and grab a GPS unit for instance. Call 513-765-1212 for any non-violent/emergency crimes. Contacts: email@example.com, Douglas.firstname.lastname@example.org
