The Board requested a Crime Watch update and, thankfully, there isn’t much to report. Over the past several months I have passed on several concerns to our Community Resource Officer, Stefani L’Esperance (formerly Partridge). Officer L’Esperance always responds immediately and follows through to make sure each situation was resolved.
If you are curious as to what has happened recently in Venetian Isles or surrounding neighborhoods, please go to http://police.stpete.org/. Scroll down and you will see St. Pete Stat. Type in Venetian Isles and change the calls to “Police” instead of “See Click Fix” and you shall see our stats.
As always, if you have any safety concerns that don’t require immediate attention, please let me know. Also, I was invited by the Chief of Police to participate in the upcoming St. Petersburg Police Department’s accreditation process. If you have any concerns or praise that you would like for me to communicate, please call or text me at 813-205-1375.
And as a constant reminder, continue to lock your car and house doors ALL THE TIME!! That includes locking your back door when you take the boat out.
