In the past year, every week with very few exceptions, the Valley Sun has been reporting burglaries in La Cañada Flintridge.
Talking to my neighbors, we feel like it is only a matter of time until our homes will be burglarized. Of course, the worst fear is that one of our family members is hurt during the crime. In these hard economic times, it seems like our neighborhoods have acquired a reputation of being an easy prey among thieves.
There are certain steps homeowners can take to reduce the possibility of home burglaries, but those alone are not enough. I am asking the sheriff’s department and our city council to take more actions to change our city reputation to reduce the number of burglaries and to increase our city safety.
