Beyond locking our doors and installing alarms, how are residents to keep their homes and families safe from these incidents?????

Linda, What you can do I'd attend a township committee meeting and ask your elected officials why the police department has 10 less cops than they had 3 years ago? Four officers on the road is the norm, they are not routinely patrolling. Your neighborhood, it's just not possible
