La Vista residents are encouraged to attend a Community Crime Prevention Forum on Thursday evening. La Vista Police Sergeant Jeremy Kinsey says a new crime trend developed over the last year and they want to inform citizens on how to protect their personal property. That includes locking doors on homes and vehicles and keeping items like purses, backpacks and other valuables out of sight.
Sergeant Kinsey says this also gives the public a chance to visit their police station and to see the operations first hand.
Volunteer neighbor leaders are also being recruited to help in updating the Crime Prevention and Neighborhood Watch programs.
The forum starts at 7pm Thursday night at the La Vista Police Station.
