Members of the Heart of Lubbock Neighborhood Association met this evening to discuss crime in the area. The association says it meets every month but this month, it specifically wanted to focus on crime.
A Lubbock Police Officer came to the meeting to update home and business owners of criminal activity in the Heart of Lubbock, and ways to prevent it. According to LPD, car and house burglaries are the main threat to the neighborhood. He advised the group to form a neighborhood watch, an idea that resident Jason Hodges says he supports.
"That's something that I thought was really interesting and that we should do as a neighborhood group."
Hodges adds that crime is in every neighborhood in Lubbock, and that it is important for residents to know the main criminal activity in their area so that they can be better protected from it.
