Throughout the year, we see a wide range of crime reports being filed. Some crimes occur much more than others; Vehicle Break-ins, Fraud (phone scams or lottery scams), and Larcenies (purse snatching or cell phone theft) just to name a few.
Most crimes committed are crimes of opportunity. The lawbreakers look for that one sign or moment of weakness or lack of attention on the victim's part. When they see that moment, they take advantage of it. It only takes a few seconds to steal something when a person (victim) is not paying attention.
The Havelock Police Department issues safety tips to the community on a wide range of topics; larcenies, scams, identity theft, etc. We hope these basic safety tips help you to not become the next victim of opportunity.
