A man whose video of a prowler is taking social media by storm would agree on the approach of having greater visibility by police.
Andreas Kettner uploaded a video of a man testing door locks around his apartment complex.
He told us prior to today’s release of police statistics that he wants the R.C.I.P.S to be more pro-active, because a higher police presence will keep criminals away.
But lacking that, he says social media will have to play a role.
“Cause we need to take a stand, I think there is not enough pro-active policing, everything seems to be retro-active, this is why this is happening and we need to take a stand and we need to share it, we need to find out who it is, who does those things and maybe we could scare them or chain them into doing whatever they are doing,” said Andreas Kettner.
And while we told you the number of burglaries and attempted burglaries is down so far this year, the number of criminal trespass and damage to property cases is trending higher.
