Rewards of a Successful Community Partnership

Over the past few years, we’ve hosted several National Night Out (NNO) events here in AP. During each of these events, we worked with community partners and sponsors to share several nice and useful crimefighting gifts to the public.  

You might recall when we partnered with and community stakeholders to bring out over 20 Ring Video Doorbells or Spotlight cameras. Or, you might remember our other NNO events where we brought you several Owl Car Cameras, providing cellular 24/7 video surveillance over your vehicle. Well, it’s paid off!  

Sure, this is just one example, but it illustrates the point-when police and community work hand-in-hand, we achieve great success at combating crime and improving quality of life for all who live, work, and play in our community. We’re sure there are more success stories out there, and you are encouraged to share!

The following video was provided to us as evidence in a vehicle burglary case. The video was recorded on an Owl Camera that was raffled off to one lucky resident during our 2018 NNO event. From the video, officers immediately recognized the offender and obtained a warrant for his arrest.  

Thank you, AP! Thank you for the excellent partnership we share as together we seek to maintain a higher quality of life for our residents and visitors.  

If you have a success story with one of the devices we raffled off, please do share!

Stay safe and keep healthy, AP.
