Spring is officially here. With the nicer weather many people will be back to enjoying outdoor activities. Please remember to be cognizant of your vehicle’s speed in residential areas. Speeding vehicles is a very common complaint year-round, but more prevalent in the springtime.
With spring time’s arrival also comes the chance of severe weather. St. Louis County has had numerous upgrades in the last several years to the Tornado Siren System which warns of approaching severe weather. Now would be a good time to re-evaluate your residence and safety plan with family members. Directions can be found on many websites on how to prepare an Emergency Preparedness Kit.

With the recent cold weather, many of us have become relaxed about leaving valuables in our personal vehicles. Thefts from autos remain the most reported crime to our precinct station. Remember to take your personal items such as purses, electronics, and other things of value with you when you secure your car. It takes a thief only seconds to steal something from an unlocked car. Please help us to reduce this crime statistic, simply by taking your belongings with you.
As always, the police department is here for you. Please do not hesitate to call us for assistance.
