Request Extra Police Watch: If you’re going out of town, you can set up what is called a 10-10 to have police officers that are not on a current call to do drive-by’s of areas at random times to keep eyes on your property. You can do this by calling the substation at 761-8800 and answering a few quick questions. It takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
