East Precinct Report:
Community Affairs Sargent Mike Fisher gave an update on the police activity in our neighborhood. We had 104 incidents since the last meeting, with 59 being vehicle related. This isn’t unique to HEN; it’s happening across Middle Tennessee. He recommended Ring (or a similar system) as a way to help deter theft. There have been approximately 75 firearms stolen out of vehicles in East Precinct this year. We have also had some residential burglaries and armed robberies in/around the neighborhood.
Also, be aware of your surroundings when walking, sitting in cars, etc. Mainly, put your phones down and be alert to what’s happening around you; please keep your doors locked when driving and sitting in your car waiting. And watch for packages being left on porches, especially during the holiday season.
