Crime Prevention Week 2019 - Protecting Our Youth

Crime Prevention LogoResilient youth are better able to handle issues like alcohol, cigarettes, misuse of prescription & illegal drugs as well as withstanding the peer pressure that comes with them. An open environment for communication can help teach your child to say NO in the face of temptation. Remember, help is available in the community to support parents in this regard.

Spike in Thefts from Vehicles - May 18 to 25, 2017

No CriminalsIn the one week period from May 18 to 25, 2017 there were more than 20 thefts from vehicles in the Oceanside area. There is obviously a criminal with an affinity for theft from auto in our community. The thefts were predominately from unlocked vehicles and in fact, it is very rare that windows are smashed to gain entry. Most of these thefts would have been avoided by the owners simply locking their vehicle doors.
