Prevention Really Does Work

On KFOR Mornings, City Public Safety Director, Tom Casady, said the “9pm Routine” really does work.  It’s the practice of making sure your garage doors are down, your car doors are locked and so are the locks around your house.  The “9pm Routine” started a few years ago by the Pasco County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office as a hashtag on its Twitter feed.  Lincoln Police started using it on social media about a year ago…and it’s working.  Casady pointed out residential burglaries so far this year total 434.  In 2000, there were 643 at this same time.  Car break-ins…888 so far this year.  18 years ago, there been more than 2,000.
