Residential Burglary and Auto Theft Prevention
From David Jugovich, police lieutenant for the West District of Madison, "As the City continues to experience burglaries and thefts from autos, the Madison Police Department is looking for assistance in preventing and solving these crimes. Citizen involvement is a powerful resource and a critical asset to law enforcement efforts. There are often simple steps that can be taken by residents that may help them avoid being victimized. We also need residents to be our 'eyes and ear' and report suspicious activity/behaviors. To that end, Neighborhood Watch programs can also be a valuable asset."
