We are fortunate that Hedwig Village is a safe community and relatively free from crime. That does not mean, however, we are immune from becoming crime victims. Property crimes are most prevalent in the area and car burglaries are most prevalent among property crimes. The information collected from police reports indicates there is a common thread among citizens victimized by car burglars. People tend to leave valuables such as briefcases, computer cases, wallets / purses, checkbooks, etc. in plain view inside their cars. Please help the police to help you. Always lock your car when left unattended and place your valuables in the trunk. The best way to avoid victimization is to limit the opportunity for those who would victimize you.
