Crime still appears to be low in the Garden District following the arrests this summer. There were only a few anonymous suspicious incidents for September and October, but none had any substance to them. However, it is still great that residents are calling in these incidents so at least it puts an Officer visible in the area for the time it takes them to respond to the call. There were a few thefts of unsecured tools and lawn care items for October but these appear to be more of crimes of opportunities and not a serial issue. See below for a synopsis of recent reports in the Garden District Area for September & October:
