VaHi Safety Team Report

Significant Incidents - None Reported

According to the APD Open Data Portal and our own Virginia-Highland Security Patrol, this was a light month. Our main problem continues to be theft from auto. We are averaging about 22 car break-ins per month here in Virginia-Highland police beat 601.

Please remember our clean car campaign and remind your friends and visitors - leave nothing in sight even if it has no value. The bag on the back seat may just contain your stinky gym clothes, but a thief will break your window to find out if there is something better inside. 

COVID-19 Update 

Current Statement from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
