San Carlos Crime Prevention Meeting: April 16th.

April 12, 2013

Focus on Crime Prevention.

If you've been keeping an eye on the local news lately, you know that there has been a rash of residential burglaries in San Carlos and surrounding communities.   There was a recent press release from the City of San Carlos warning about “door knock” burglaries, where the perpetrators first knock on the door under the guise of being a repairman or salesperson.   Once they determine that nobody is home, they quickly work to gain entry and quickly clean the house out of valuable.   It has been the most common mode of burglary lately, in what has become an epidemic of residential burglaries.

Next week, a neighborhood crime prevention meeting has been set up for the residents of White Oaks and surrounding neighborhoods in San Carlos.  The San Carlos Bureau of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department will be in attendance to discuss the recent string of burglaries, and to recommend ways that neighbors can protect themselves.  Here's the notification that went out today over the Nextdoor neighborhood network:

Dear Neighbors of White Oaks and Surrounding Areas:

Due to the many residential burglaries occurring in San Carlos and surrounding cities a Crime Prevention meeting has been set up with the Sheriff's Office to discuss these incidents and see how residents can better protect themselves, assist the police in catching these thieves and stop these crimes.

Meeting Date: Tuesday April 16, 2013
