The January crime reports are below. Simply put, best month ever. There were only 8 TOTAL crime incidents in the residential part of the neighborhood. It wasn’t that long ago that we would have 8 burglaries per month alone. There were no home break-ins this month though there was a string of garage break-ins in the BACD area and small cluster of car break-ins in the M-Streets East area, this may be the lowest number of car breakins I’ve seen in a long time. I spoke to our ENP officer and he tells me that residential crimes were down all over the city in January mostly due to the cold and wet weather we had. I’m not going to complain about that, but don’t expect that to hold as the weather improves. The only down side is that we are seeing a little more crime along the business corridor on Greenville. Several businesses have had burglaries and incidents of dine & dash and credit card fraud are becoming more common.
Getting ready for St. Pat’s
In about a month, the annual swarming of lepruchauns will hit the neighborhood. The information about the event, including parking restrictions and emergency contact numbers will be incorporated into your LGNA newsletter. Please be sure to check your newsletter for all the details. I will also send out further emails with more info as we get closer to the event. The event will be Saturday March 14th. As usual, LGNA will be working with the businesses hosting the street party to place No Parking signs throughout most of the neighborhood. Signs will be installed on the Thursday prior to the event but are only in effect on the day of the event. As always, we need a lot of volunteers to help with posting the signs. If you are able, join us on Thursday March 12th between 5pm and 7pm at 5843 Vanderbilt to help post signs.
