Crime has a cost that is ultimately paid for by the law abiding citizens of our community. We all pay higher prices and higher taxes as a result of crime. Help reduce this cost. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement cannot control crime without your help. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs to solve these cases.
