Safety for the Holidays

Burglaries, Thefts, and Theft from Auto offenses generally increase during the holiday season.
Tips to target harden yourself, your home, and your car:

  • If you are going out of town, have a friend or neighbor check on your house. A vacation check is not a service CPD is able to provide.

  • Make an inventory of your valuables. Document serial numbers. Photograph other items.

  • Make sure doors and windows are locked and get secondary locking mechanisms. Cameras and alarm systems are very helpful in deterring offenders and catching criminals.

  • Don’t leave boxes, like television boxes, at the curb for trash pickups. It’s a signal to criminals to show what electronics are in your house.

  • Beware the porch pirates. Get packages delivered to work or an alternate address if you will not be home to receive them. Request a signature upon delivery.

  • Don’t leave valuables, shopping bags, or wrapped presents in your car. Put your junk in your trunk before you arrive to your destination. A broken window costs a thief nothing.

  • Do not leave your car unattended while running. There was a huge spike in Auto Thefts in Mt. Auburn last year. Invest in Remote Start.

  • Watch out for people who are soliciting donations. Ask for identification.

  • Know how to track your phone if its lost or stolen. Have the numbers to call the company if your credit card(s) are lost or stolen.

CPD requests that all drug complaints are made through the non-emergency number (513-7651212), the neighborhood officer, or the Violent Crimes Squad. Officer Brazile prefers emails because it eliminates phone tag and it’s easier to pass information to the appropriate investigators.

If you have photos of drug transactions with PLATES or FACES, email them to

If you would like to pass on a license plate or a location, you can call Officer Brazile to leave a message at 569-8677 or send an email.

If you want to speak to an investigator or VCS investigator with more IN DEPTH information, call District 4 front desk at 569-8600 and request to speak to a VCS officer.

If drug activity is happening, call 765-1212 so an officer can respond.

Do Not Call the Neighborhood Liaison Unit if an offense is actively happening or if you need an officer right now. Emergency Communications Center (513-765-1212) has someone answering phones 24/7. The Neighborhood Liaison Unit has varying work hours and is not always in the office-we spend a lot of time in the neighborhoods.

The STARS report under Crime Analysis also has GUN RECOVERY information city wide.

The 40 guns that were recovered were from all over District Four, which has ten neighborhoods.

Poplar St. is under investigation by Health, Buildings and Police Departments. Andy’s Café had re-inspection the week of the 11th.
