Capt. John Fleming will be at the 14th district’s monthly PSA 4 meeting, which will be held on Thursday, April 10 at 7 p.m. at the Lutheran Theological Seminary, 7301 Germantown Ave. As spring approaches, burglaries tend to increase Fleming said.

Fleming offered these tips to help prevent burglaries in their neighborhood – always set your alarm, cut back bushes, don’t leave boxes on the curb, lock all doors and windows, leave lights on, and call the district and file a roll call claim. A roll call claim informs all three shifts that a house is going to be vacant.
