On Tuesday November 26, 2019 I, Officer D. Padron and Officer Craddock responded to a burglary to a residence located in the 1100 block of St Augustine AVE NE. Upon arrival officers met with the victim, who stated that items from his garage were stolen.

Fight Back Against Crime (FBAC) is now Virginia-Highland Security Patrol, inc.
This year the patrol has incorporated and received 501c3 non-profit status with the IRS. This change will allow the patrol to seek grants and donations to increase the services offered to the community. Those who pay for their membership via paper check should make that out to the Virginia-Highland Security Patrol in the future.
Be aware, that membership payments are not tax deductible as it is payment for a service. However, any charitable donations or sponsorships can be deducted. The new non-profit corporation continues to be managed by volunteers including Beth Marks (welcome back after a several year hiatus), Steve Rosenberg, Nan Safay (retiring this year), Kay Stephenson, Charles Zimmer, and John Wolfinger. Chris Clark, who formed the patrol along with Beth Marks over 25 years ago continues to serve on the board and recruit and manage the officers on patrol.
The usual reminder is always to mind your surroundings.  Do not leave packages or items of valuable in your vehicle.  Stay on alert when walking to and from your vehicle at shopping malls and other retail locations. Try to get your packages as quickly as possible from your homes that are dropped off by USPS, FED-EX and UPS.  STAY ALERT!

If you see someone or something suspicious, please report it to the police.  When driving or out walking keep an eye out in the neighborhood, what you see and report just might prevent a crime.
