There have been 6 or 7 theft from cars and 2 cars stolen in South Oakland the last 2 weeks on Hardie Way, Dawson and Parkview.
We are urging residents to take basic precautions to prevent crimes. This includes like making sure doors are locked and the importance of leaving nothing visible inside your car. Obviously this includes anything like laptop, camera, cell-phone, purse, etc., but also anything not as obviously valuable, like an old pair of jeans or worn-looking crumpled sweatshirt. To a hopeful thief, they could contain a wallet, jewelry, etc.,
A related precaution: Never leave a charger plugged into your vehicle’s accessory-socket! A potential thief seeing that telltale wire draped across the center-console, might hope to find a cell-phone or GPS, etc.
Attached is the City Weekly Crime Report for last week.
Here in Pittsburgh, Oakland is one of several neighborhoods, including Lawrenceville and Garfield, that is launching a Trust to combat the critical shortage of quality, afford-able homes available to regular homebuyers. Many other neighborhoods are engaging residents to decide if this model works for them.
See the attached pamphlet for an overview and links to more info, and watch for local meetings to discuss implementation.

Pittsburgh Police Youth Programs Unit
The Cops & Kids Summer Camp represents a unique experience for Pittsburgh area youth to understand and explore all aspects of policing and public safety.
For one week, campers will experience positive interactions with police officers. The curriculum is designed to enhance your child’s knowledge of public safety, as well as, reinforcing positive decision-making.
The objective is to encourage campers to start early being responsible for their actions.
