OPD Crime Prevention and Public Information Officer Open Letter

Warm weather is approaching and I’d like to offer the residents and property owners of the City of Ogdensburg a word of advice for the upcoming spring season. The number of crimes throughout the city in regards to criminal mischief to property, and vehicle break-ins, as well as burglaries of homes, is always a concern.

Please protect your homes by:
  1. securing your windows and doors
  2. never leave your residential doors unlocked, especially during night hours.
The Ogdensburg City Police Department is still noticing a vulnerability of people leaving their vehicle doors unlocked. Whether it’s during the day, or during night hours, remember to lock your vehicle doors. Also, never leave any valuables such as money, merchandise purchased from stores, purses, wallets, etc. in your vehicles, as leaving such valuables in your vehicles, whether its daylight or darkness, results in the susceptibility of your vehicle being a target of a crime.

On that note, as Crime Prevention Officer and Public Information of the City of Ogdensburg and your local police department, I’d like to offer my services in assisting City residents in answering any questions you may have with how better protecting your property and/or your family against being a target of a crime. With the new trends in crimes occurring everyday, it will give you the recommendations to protect yourself and your property. I cannot guarantee that crime will never affect you in your lifetime, however, with the recommendations and notifications I can share with you, I hope to reduce the chance that crime will happen.

Remember this, if you feel that there is suspicious activity or person(s) in your area and it becomes a concern to you, please call your local police department. It’s better to report your concerns, so that our police officers can patrol your area before a crime is committed, rather than after the crime has already been committed. The personal safety of the residents of the City of Ogdensburg is our number one concern, and we’ll take every necessary step in achieving that.
