Summer officially starts Wednesday and it's time to enjoy all the great things that come with this time of year. Swimming pools, fishing rods, golf courses, boating, and those beautiful West Texas evenings.
Unfortunately summer does also bring some unique crime trends. Vandalism, car burglaries, and overall summer mischief tend to spike in these months and now is a good time for a few smart reminders.
We all have a stake in our community and our neighborhood. Let's remember to not only take care of our business, but also be a good neighbor. Lock your cars at night, turn on your porch lights, and keep an eye on your neighbor's house.
If you see unusual activity, don't ignore it. Report it. Let's all do our part to keep our neighborhoods safe. That way, we can enjoy more summertime fun and spend less time dealing with summertime blues.
