When will Sheriff Departments BE UPDATED WITH NOW TECH?..That way the forms to be filled out can be done online or in computer form and maybe individuals can have direct access to communication for what’s being done ..I believe more than half of crimes are recorded but by the time officers investigate footage is gone or & Culprits get away
This is sad, so many criminals walking free in the AV, they never seemed to be caught, even though most apartments have surveillance cameras, the criminal needs to pay for his crime!!!

“especially on Christmas day so sad.”

Sad all the garbage that moved up here with THEIR garbage problems, terrorizing the people who have been here for many years..
Deborah how can you say this person was garbage? This person was someone’s friend or brother, son, etc.. so to say garbage is downright cruel, especially on Christmas day so sad.
