A safe community is everyone's responsibility
As was evidenced by a a daylight robbery at Wal-Mart 19, the frequency and boldness of the the criminal elements in our society knows no bounds.
It behooves the rest of us to be ever vigilant and diligent in being aware of our surroundings, not only for ourselves but for our neighbors also. If something doesn't look right, it probably isn't. Make notes of car tags and time of day if witnessing strange or out of the ordinary events.
Check on your elderly neighbors from time to time, as the elderly seem to be especially vulnerable to thefts and vandalism. Don't assume that your police or sheriff's department won't do anything. Call them anyway. Attend your community watch groups.
Oh, and pray, pray hard for each other, government leaders, and law enforcement. If we want a better, safer community it's up to us.
