The APPD has officers who patrol and investigate crimes and claims of crimes, but they can only do so much with out the support of you and I. By reporting suspicious behavior and people, by watching out for our neighbors or contacting authorities with information we may have then, and only then, are we being proactive to help keep our streets safe.
Sadly many people are afraid to contact the police. Ask yourself, why? Why Should I call and tell the police what I know or what I saw? The answer is simple: to make the streets of Asphyxiation safe again! If you have information about a crime or a suspect in a crime and you come forward it is far more likely that the crime will get solved and the person or persons responsible will go to jail. Taking those threats off the streets keeps everyone safe.
Our Police force is here to help, but they need our help as well. I spoke with APPD Chief DeSanta recently about this matter and this is what he had to say. "Well simply if you come forward and report a crime we'll investigate it and help. A lot of folks is scared to report crimes, maybe for fear of retribution, or even fear of the police. First and foremost' we're here to help folks and keep them safe an we'll do our utmost to protect those who are victims of crime, or who have information on crime and criminals."
Reporting crimes and coming forward with information is a duty all citizens have to their neighbors, their town and to themselves. The police aren't our enemy, they are our defense against these criminals and we need to help them help us.
