A Message from Doug Strouse, our Meridian Police Officer

I hope the new year is starting off well for you. So far in the new year we have seen an uptick in suspicious situation calls for service. Officers are fielding reports of subjects being seen lurking around homes during the daytime. This type of activity should definitely be reported if seen. Commonly this is a precursor to daytime breaking and entering.

Just be vigilant and make sure to lock your home securely and close curtains and such when you leave the house. If you have the means and can purchase home surveillance, that’s a great tool to have as well.

On a positive note, we have not seen any corresponding break ins following these incidents.

That is all I have to report, so if you have any questions or concerns, I’m here as always.
