I agree with Michael. I also think that eternal vigilance is the price of safety. Don’t leave anything in you car and be very aware of your personal surroundings. Wear a whistle and walk in twos.

I think businesses as well as multifamily apartment buildings should have functioning cameras covering the street area of their property and it make a municipal code to furnish a copy to police if there is a reported crime in that vicinity. I also think there should be a more organized effort to start neighborhood watches.
