1 CMPD Eastway Division: Response Area 2 Response Area Commander: Lt. Christian Wagner phone: August 2015 Welcome to the August edition of the Eastway Division Response Area Two On the Beat monthly newsletter. I have been sending the newsletter by and nextdoor.com to community leaders, residents and apartment managers with the hope that it will be distributed to residents throughout the Eastway Division Response Area Two (RA2). Please send me an e- mail at or contact the Eastway Division office at , if you would like to receive this newsletter directly. I am happy to report that for July, our crime numbers were relatively low. We are still facing some of the same problems we regularly see. These include situations were suspects are entering unlocked vehicles and taking anything that is left in the vehicle. We do still see things that are left unsecured and unattended being taken on a regular basis. This brings me back to the tips that I mentioned in the last newsletter. Following these tips will help reduce crime in our area. Don t leave valuables in plain sight in your car. Lock your car doors. Use locking or hex head bolts to hold your vehicle s tag in place. Do not leave any property that you value unsecured or unattended. Specifically, do not put your wallet, purse or cell phone down on a counter, chair or floor when at a store, park, anywhere and leave it, even for just a moment! Please call 911 if you see someone pushing a lawnmower down the street! Put an owner applied number somewhere on your mower with some etching paint and photograph it in case they steal it. (This helps us locate it on the street or at a pawn shop.) Lock your bike up if you plan to leave it unattended. Consider using anti-theft devices on your vehicle. (Especially if you own an older Honda or Dodge product.) In July, officers arrested three subjects who had robbed a victim on Eastcrest Drive. These subjects are believed to have committed several robberies on the same night throughout the city. Detectives were able to charge a suspect with a burglary that also occurred on Eastcrest Drive. We believe this subject is responsible for several burglaries in the Eastcrest and Commonwealth area. We are still hoping to bring more charges against the suspect. Detectives were also able to charge a suspect for a robbery that occurred on Central Avenue. Moving forward, we are hoping to find out from you what concerns are most important to you. We will be soliciting this information on nextdoor.com in the near future. If you don t use nextdoor, please feel free to me with your top concerns. We will be compiling this information and use it to guide us in the future.

2 As I post every month, there are several things that you can do to help us reduce all crime in your neighborhoods: Remember to call 911 when you see anything suspicious. Don t worry if what you called about was nothing, I d rather send an officer to check it out than have them come back later to take a report. Lock your car doors at night; don t leave anything of value in your car that can be seen from the outside. Thieves will break your window out for change in your ash tray! Record the serial numbers of all of your electronics and power tools and keep this list in a safe place. If burglars take these items and try to sell them at a pawn shop, we can then catch them. Lastly, remember to call 911 when you see anything suspicious. I put this one again because this is the biggest obstacle that we still face with crimes in our area. Too many times we here after the fact about things that people observed that could have helped us catch criminals in the act! Thank you for all of your help. Please continue to share this newsletter and work with us to prevent the next crime in your neighborhood.

3 Eastway Division Response Area Two The map below represents the area defined by the CMPD as Response Area Two of the Eastway Division.

4 Crime Stats for the Month of July We monitor crime daily and compare it to the same days, weeks and months to the year prior. Comparing crime numbers to the prior year allows us to constantly measure how we are doing. The above report demonstrates the 28 day period which allows us to monitor the pulse of the Response Area.

5 Community Coordinator Corner Do you need help with a problem, want to report a drug dealer or just share a community concern? You can contact your Police Community Coordinators. Officer Paul Benloss Plaza Midwood Commonwealth- Morningside Plaza Midwood Merchants Association July Update: Plaza Midwood Plaza Midwood had two larcenies from vehicles in the neighborhood during the month of July. There were no arrests in any of the two cases at this time. At the 1519 Central Avenue an unknown suspect used a vehicle to ram the front door of the business to remove clothing items from inside of the building at approximately 5:00am. The only suspect description at this time is two black males in a dark grey van which was last seen traveling towards town on Central Avenue. We recently increased traffic enforcement in the Plaza-Midwood neighborhood with the recent complaints from the last community meeting. I want to remind the neighborhood to continue to call 911 when you observe suspicious activity in the neighborhoods. Commonwealth Morningside/Plaza Midwood Merchants: During the month of July there were two reported larceny from vehicles reported in the area. The first case was an unlocked car door at 1704 Central Avenue which is the Harris Teeter parking lot. The second incident occurred at the 1800 block of Central Avenue which is the scooter shop. The victim advised a known suspect removed items from a scooter which was parked outside of the business. The suspect returned the items and the victim did not want to prosecuted the suspect in the case. There was an auto theft at the 1200 block of Thomas Avenue which the victim parked the vehicle in the parking lot at Central and Thomas avenue. The victim returned to the vehicle after being at Thomas street tavern and the vehicle was gone. The vehicle was recovered in another division a few days later. At the 2600 Central Avenue the victim reported an unknown suspect used an unknown object to smash out the front window of the business. The unknown suspect removed a cashier from the business. *Remember to call 911 when you see anything suspicious. Don t worry if what you called about is nothing, I d rather send an officer to check it out than have them come back later to take a report. Lock your car doors at night; don t leave anything of value in your car that can be seen from the outside. Thieves will break your window out for change in your ash tray! Record the serial numbers of all of your electronics and power tools and keep this list in a safe place. If burglars take these items and try to sell them at a pawn shop, we can then catch them.

6 Officer Lance Fusco Commonwealth Park Eastcrest/Green Oaks July Update: Commonwealth Park We had an unknown male subject enter the 658 Church on Central Avenue and steal the victim wallet. The suspect removed the wallet from the victim purse. This case is under investigation At 2800 Commonwealth Avenue residence that was recently renovated and for sale was a victim of a breaking and entering. The suspect(s) entered the residence by using a rock to break a window. A television that was being used as a prop was stolen, television does not work. We had another good month in the Commonwealth Park neighborhood,keep up with calling 911 when you observe suspicious activity. Talk to everyone next month. Eastcrest/Green Oaks/Peach Bottom/Vista Commons/Oak Valley Apartments: There were three suspects that were arrested for armed robbery that occurred at 1525 Eastcrest Drive, Johan Chacon- 11/16/1997, a juvenile, and Juan Julian-09/28/1997. A golf cart was stolen from the Aurora Apartments. The golf cart is used by maintenance and was locked in a storage shed. This case is still under further investigation. We had a breaking and entering at 1500 Eastcrest Drive. The victim stated that he didn t have power in the apartment for 22 days and during that time his property was stolen, gold bracelet, sports jersey and jacket. Case is still under further investigation. We had a breaking and entering at 1653 Eastcrest Drive. The suspect(s) entered the apartment by breaking the back window. A lap top, cell phone and a blue tooth speaker was stolen. Case is still under investigation. There was a breaking and entering 1653 Eastcrest Drive. During the investigation Officers and Detectives were able to identify the suspect. The suspect is a juvenile and his information cannot be reported. Juan Julian

7 Officer Dave Artieri August 2015 Newsletter: Folks, We continue to see two types of thefts that are regular. Cell phones and license plates are daily objects sought after by criminals. I would recommend never leaving your cell phone out of sight and consider investing in theft deterrent screws for your license plate. These can be purchased anywhere from 2-7 dollars which is less costly than a new license plate. Merry Oaks Merry Oaks Neighborhood: Overall, a good month for the Merry Oaks Neighborhood. We did however have a reported burglary that took place at the 2200 block of Farmington Lane. This offense took place on July 16 th. We believe that there was more than one suspect involved and they most likely had a vehicle. The suspects entered after they broke a rear window. Please be on the lookout for anything suspicious in the area and don t hesitate to call 911 to alert us. Country Club Apartments: We had a reported auto theft this period that took place at the 2447 Dunlavin building. This offense took place around July 8 th. Suspect(s) unknown stole the victim s scooter. There was a reported larceny of an air conditioning unit that took place behind the 2529 Dunlavin building. Air conditioner thefts are common throughout the city, so please be observant and call 911 if you see anything. Birchcroft Apartments: Apartment renovations and construction are booming throughout the Eastway division. Unfortunately, with this comes theft of construction materials. During this period, we had a reported theft of tools and copper wiring. This took place sometime during the first week of July. Aztec Apartments: There was a reported larceny from auto that took place sometime during the week of 7/25. In this case, an unknown suspect stole a license plate from a car near the 2700 building.

8 Crisis Intervention Team A pre-booking Jail Diversion Program CIT is a community-based collaboration between law enforcement, mental health agencies, consumers and family members, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)-Charlotte, and Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC). Law Enforcement Officers are frequently front-line responders to persons in crisis with a serious mental illness. In an effort to better prepare officers to respond to these individuals, a number of communities (more than 500 in the US) have developed a Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program. These initiatives are modeled after the parent program which began in 1988 in Memphis, Tennessee. The Three Components of CIT Programs: 1. Intensive training - Police officers and other first responders receive up to 40 hours of training regarding mental illness, co-occurring disorders, and response strategies. 2. Strong mental health partnerships Police and mobile crisis workers who respond to people in crisis seek viable options for linking individuals with mental health treatment in lieu of arrest. 3. Significant mental health consumer and family involvement - Consumer and family advocates are integrally involved in the design and implementation of local CIT programs. CIT is a specialized law enforcement response to people in serious mental health crisis. Carefully selected volunteer patrol officers receive Crisis Intervention Team training in a 40- hour certification course where they learn: Recognizing signs of mental illness for persons in crisis Basic diagnosis and medication knowledge Verbal de-escalation skills Community resource information How CIT works and how it fits into each department s operations CIT STEP-BY-STEP 1. Family member or other person calls 911 for mental health crisis. 2. Patrol Officer dispatched; when mental health crisis is identified CIT officer is called to the scene. 3. CIT Officer assesses situation utilizing verbal de-escalation and other learned skills then determines best course of action; if more extensive mental health assessment is needed Mobile Crisis can be called to the scene. Mental health consumer receives appropriate services while coordination with Criminal Justice System maintains accountability.

10 Business Security Grant Program Reducing the Opportunity for Crime The City has a matching grant program that can reimburse 50% - 60% of eligible security expenses for your business location. How does the program work? It s a simple process, but there are certain steps that must be followed. Once an eligible business submits an application, a Eastway Division Officer will visit your business to conduct a security survey. The Officer will make crime prevention recommendations tailored to your specific location and business type. These recommendations are eligible for participation in the grant program. You ll need to provide cost estimates to the Neighborhood & Business Services Department (N&BS) before doing any of the work. Once this is done and a grant contract is signed, you can complete the security installations, pay your contractor(s), and submit your payment documentation to N&BS for reimbursement. How much can I qualify for? The program provides 50% reimbursement for eligible security improvements; 60% reimbursement may be available on a caseby-case basis. Most buildings can qualify for up to $5,000 per tax parcel. Shopping center owners can be eligible for up to $20,000 and individual shopping center tenants are eligible for up to $2,000. How do I get started? Visit for eligibility criteria, program details and to download an application. If you re a business operating in the Eastway Division, let s work together to reduce opportunities for crime in our community!
