*NEW* Burglary Information

Forwarded Email Starts Here:

Hi Neighborhood Watch Groups,

I have another BOLO (Be On Lookout) for you. We have had two burglaries in the past week where someone entered two residences through unlocked doors (one a garage door) and stole items. In one case, it looks like entry may have even been made during the night while the residents were asleep. This is especially scary. Criminals that will do that are particularly desperate. West Bountiful also had similar burglaries. Two suspicious vehicles were seen in the area prior to the burglaries, and they may or may not be related to the burglaries. The vehicle were described as a maroon Ford Taurus with Nevada plates, Hispanic male driver and female passenger, and the other was a large red dump truck with an Asian male driving. The vehicle had no logos. Both asked a resident about selling her vehicle (the car was not for sale).

The word is - - - if you notice either of these vehicles in the area, please contact police immediately. Even more importantly, make sure all doors and window are locked, including the garage door and any man doors that go into the garage.

Stay safe and stay alert!!!!

Message from City Council Uniting Neighbors

Dear Friends of Uniting Neighbors,

This email is being sent to all those who have attended Uniting Neighbors in the past months. I hope this email finds you all well. I want to thank you all for your attendance at Uniting Neighbors and for your efforts to make our city a better place to live (and work for some). Again, we apologize that our guest speaker this month fell through, but appreciate your attendance and the good discussion we had. I know many of you have specific interests in Emergency Preparedness, some in Neighborhood Watch and our hope is that over the coming months we can all help each other have a greater interest in both. The Goal of Uniting Neighbors is to help residents to be prepared for whatever emergency may come upon us.

As you all know, Marty Peterson is working feverishly to ensure each of your local area (church or neighborhood units) preparedness plans correspond with the City plan, to get residents educated about the plan and ensure it is implemented city wide. Please help us in encouraging your neighbors to attend UN meetings, to get involved and be prepared.

We are also trying to help residents get Neighborhood watch groups organized city wide. We have some groups established and functioning, but other areas do not hve any presence. If you are intereted in getting a group set up, we are happy to help, offer ideas, or attend a startup meeting, just let me know.

Please remember that Uniting Neighbors is the 2nd Wednesday every month at City Hall. Kent, Marty and I are working on getting some classes and training set up that will be beneficial and interesting to all. Please plan to join us and please invite your neighbors as well. In March, we are planning to have Officer Everett (our Gang Enforcement Officer) attend to provide training on Gang awareness and a discussion on what is happening in NSL.

Finally, if you are a Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, would you please let me know. We are trying to determine who the watch coordinators are.

Thank you and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, ideas or comments on Uniting Neighbors in NSL.

NSL Tip Line *NEW!*

A message from NSL city councilman, Stewart Harman:

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and wish you all the best in the new year.

As many of you are aware, our city has seen more than its share of burglaries over the past few months. Let me thank all those neighborhood watch groups and our police depart for all they are doing to clean up the problem. For you information, our city has now established a Tip Line for anyone to report suspicious activity and tips on crimes that have occurred. it is (801) 335 –TIPS (8477) or by email at TIPS@nslcity.org.

For those who do not have an active neighborhood watch group in their neighborhood and would like assistance in getting one started, feel free to contact me for more information and/or help in setting it up. The Uniting Neighbors committee will also be hosting a discussion on protecting our homes and neighborhoods from thieves and crime this coming month. Our Police Chief has arranged for a guest speaker to give a firsthand account of what a thief looks for and how to discourage thieves. This will be a great opportunity to build awareness in our city. Please invite your neighbors, watch groups and anyone interested in attending on January 12, 2010 at 7:30 pm at City Hall.

Finally, for those who have not seen it, I have attached hereto a flyer that was recently prepared which contains a number of things you can do to better protect yourselves and your homes. Thank you for helping to make our city a great place to live. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments. Thank you and Merry Christmas,


Stewart B. Harman

Lyndhurst Break-In

Hello neighbors,

I just wanted to inform all of you that there was a break in that occurred on Lyndhurst today, probably around 11:30 am. The police said this was the second daytime break in in the last week and a half in North Salt Lake. If any of you saw or heard anything suspicious around that time, do not hesitate to call the police. Please be vigilant in keeping watch and an eye on your neighbors houses, as well as remember to keep you outside lights on at night. Thank you!

Be On The Lookout!

Attention all Neighborhood Watch Members!

Last night around 4:45, Mila Higdon (12 yr-old living on Woodstock) was riding her bike around the church when a red four-door car driven by an older man (white hair and balding) wearing large sunglasses followed her around the building and home along Foxboro, Wilton, and Woodstock to her home where she saw him wave to her before driving away. She felt uncomfortable and we know it wasn't our neighbor, Dennis Cook. Nor does the description fit any of our neighbors. The car was also spotted on Monday afternoon cruising through our area around the same time of day. We've contacted local schools and the NSL Police. We just don't want the kids out on their own right now. Just be aware and on the look-out. If you do see a car and driver matching this description, please get the licence plate, time, location, direction of travel, or anything that could help us find out who this person is.

Thank you all so much!

Leigh Okleberry

Area 3 Coordinator

April Foxboro Town Meeting w/ Gang Unit Officer

[notes from Roxey Catenzaro]

Hello Neighbors!
We had an amazing meeting with our new gang enforcement officer. I wanted to pass on the notes that I took for those of you who were not able to attend this informative meeting.

*Announcement of our new Chief of Police as of May 1, Craig Black. He was also in attendance.
*Recent activities: tagging, break-ins, fights.
*Currently discussing the safety of the green space. If you have any suggestions such as lighting the space, please let us know.
*Please remember to follow ALL laws when patrolling and do not be alarmed if YOU are pulled over by the police. They are doing their job and we definitely look suspicious driving slowly through the neighborhood at odd hours!

Presentation by Officer Everett, gang enforcement. NSL Gangs 101
*Types of gangs in NSL: Hispanic, Polynesian, White, Middle Eastern, Black, and Asian
*Clothing to look for: Bandannas hanging from clothing, or on head-black, white, brown, red, purple, green, or yellow.
Belts-canvas type, worn with it hanging extra long, buckle may have #013
Uniform-creased pants, flannel shirt-modeled after 60's style prison uniform. Sports jerseys, shoes-Nike Cortez shoe or Chuck Taylors.
Hispanic gang history: Surenos- affiliate with blue, shaved heads, #13=La EME or Mexican Mafia (who are their "Shot callers").
Norternos- red, #14=ENE, shaved head with long 'knot' of hair hanging down the back middle of head.
Unafiliated- any color, Utah gang
Middle Eastern- red, terrorist organization names, but no known terrorist threat.
Polynesian Gangs- Tongan Crip Gang TCG- blue, bandannas on left.
USO Outlaws- no colors
Juggalos- ICP Insane Clown Posse music group(also uses the symbol from this music group, "hatchet man"), no known leadership.

Graffiti: We looked at graffiti examples and learned how to read it. It is different from 'tagging' that is more an art expression and not always associated with gangs. Although, some gangs start as Tagger Crews.

* Since February, there have been almost 50 identified gang members living in NSL. If you want to contact Officer Everett directly, his email is curtise@nslcity.org

BRETT COOK on the importance of lighting your house
*Over 55% reduction in crime with your porch lights on at night!!
*Can use 'Dusk to Dawn' light controls, photo cells. $5-8 a piece
*In Wall Timers are the best option for $20-40
*Try using flourescent lights; the brighter the better :)
