This is so upsetting. The crime is out of control in Altadena.

We need to LOCK ALL of our DOORS and WINDOWS - ALL THE TIME! It's sad that we have to do this but I bet that if we make it harder for thieves to make a living doing this here they will move on or find a new line of 'work'. I am floored that there are so many reports of wallets, laptops and other items taken from UNLOCKED CARS!! Better yet, keep an eye on your neighbor's homes!! It's horrible to have your home and privacy violated and have items you have worked hard to earn - taken!! The theft on October 6th on La Solana was caught on tape which is FANTASTIC!! 1. ALWAYS Lock doors & windows 2. If you have an alarm - SET IT ALWAYS 3. REPORT anything suspicious or anyone suspicious 4. RECORD all items of VALUE!!!!! - a pen and paper is all you need to write down serial numbers, models and makes of electronic products. Take photos of jewelry and any other valuables so that if you are a victim you have a chance to recover your goods and these records also help when you file a claim with your home owners or rental insurance!!!!! Personally I am going to invest in a camera or two. I think it is a great tool for law enforcement!!

My neighbor has cams, and I'm getting them, too - on all sides. But not the visible ones - the ones hidden inside, that records outside. And, as much as I hate it, going to invest in window bars. I also set my alarm, even for a quick run to the store. so sad we have to live this way.

I'm going to get a camera system too!

It does, indeed, seem to me that since the personnel change at Altadena Station the bad guys have taken back the town. I feel like our law enforcement needs to get a handle on this again as they did when Capt McLean was around!

The Altadena Sheriff's Station is doing an outstanding job! Actually crime is down since April when Capt. McLean left. More neighborhood watch groups are partnering with the Sheriff's Station to help bring property crimes down.
