Residential Burglary Update

Sierra Madre Police Dept. logoPress Release posted 9/10/13 – The Police Department has been deploying extra officers on day-shift in both plain clothes and in uniform to address the rising issue of residential burglaries. The City has not experienced any residential burglaries since August 17, 2013 and the Department feels the extra suppression units along with public education and awareness are paying off. More people are calling the Police Department to report suspicious activities than in the past and that is a good thing. The Police Department conducted 3 Neighborhood Watch Meetings in August and has seven more Meetings scheduled in September.
