Over past years, we have seen an uptick in Residential Burglary reports during the holidays. Take a look at a recent area crime map above for burglaries having occurred around the first week of the month.
The majority of Arcadia burglaries are committed during daytime hours. However, we have had some incidents occur during evening hours in recent months. While the Department places additional officers, both in plain cars and marked units in problem areas, we are not always in the right place at the right time. Please remember to be vigilant in both your observation of your neighborhood and with your own home safety and security, all hours of the day.
