Burglaries Prompt Police To Issue Plea
MANKATO (TEC News) -- In the wake of another round of burglaries in Mankato, Public Safety Commander Jeremy Clifton used a catchy phrase to get his point across.
"If you see something...say something," said Clifton.
In a message that police have repeated over and over this summer, Clifton urged residents in all parts of Mankato to keep an eye on their neighborhoods and report any suspicious activity.
"Crime is a community problem, not a police problem," said Clifton.
Like a vast majority of burglaries, access is easy because doors to both homes and cars are not locked.
"Harden your target," says Clifton. "Lock up your home and cars and remove valuables."
Clifton also recommends leaving exterior lights on at night to make your property less accessable at night.
