The Southborough Police Department will hold a community meeting next week to share information about a recent spike in crime in town, notably home and vehicle break-ins. They’ll also talk about ways you can keep your home and property safe.

Since mid-July police have responded to break-ins at four Southborough homes and two Southborough businesses. A number of vehicle break-ins have also been reported. Police have asked residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.

On their Facebook page, the department said the objective of next week’s meeting is “to provide information, as well as techniques and suggestions for Crime Prevention.”

The meeting takes place on Tuesday, August 21 at 7:00 pm in the Southborough Fire Department training room (21 Main Street). The public is invited to attend.

I urge everyone interested in protecting their home and our town to attend the Police community meeting tonight 8/21 (7pm-Fire Station). Here’s what I hope to learn:
- Information about recent break-ins (When – patterns – type of goods stolen, ‘kids’ versus professionals, etc)
- What types of ‘suspicious’ activities should we report? (People can be reluctant to report as they don’t want to be perceived as paranoid.)
- What is the best way to report such activities?
- What additional information should be included that the average person may not think about?
- What else should I be doing to ensure the security of my home?
The list will just go on as people start thinking about these questions and possible vulnerability.

The Police can’t be everywhere – it is in our best interest to help be their ‘eyes’ and ‘ears’.
