In late summer and early fall of 2013-2014, the Village of Newark was suffering from a large number of car break-ins & burglaries. A significant number of the police reports indicated that the incidents were occurring in single family residential areas and where the owners were leaving the vehicles parked in their driveway with valuables inside and the vehicles unlocked. This was allowing theft perpetrators to simply walk through the neighborhoods undetected at night, open the unlocked vehicles and take whatever had been left in the vehicle.
We recognized that we had an opportunity to get this information out to our community through e-mail (which most people now access via smartphones). We are planning on providing Crime Trends, Crime Prevention, Crime Updates and to Identify Suspects. We hope this project will grow to include all Village of Newark residents and business leaders which will allow us to provide this information to everyone much quicker.
