This Saturday (April 26th) the Nebraska MEDS project will take back unused medications at 5 pharmacies near Taylor Park. Taking back leftover medications for proper disposal is extremely important because it reduces the risk of accidental poisonings and illegal drug use, all the while protecting aquatic environments as well as our own drinking water.

This opportunity to safely dispose of leftover medications (including controlled substances such as pain killers, etc.) only occurs once or twice a year because of the special logistics required, so please take advantage!

Seasonal Crime Alert

The Holiday Season will soon be upon us. As we busy ourselves with preparations and shopping, others busy themselves by stealing your things. This year when you are out shopping please keep all of your purchases, electronics, wallets and purses in a locked trunk out of sight. It takes only a few seconds to break a window or open an unlocked door. About 40% of all larceny from autos and burglaries are the result of unlocked or open doors; keeping your doors locked is easy and effective.

Many items that are stolen have serial numbers. Unfortunately many victims do not keep records of their serial numbers. Serial numbers help officers connect stolen property to victims and hold criminals responsible. For tips on how to record serial numbers visit, www.lincoln.ne.gov/city/police/. First click Safety Tips, and then click on Home Inventory Tips. There is also a printable inventory worksheet.

When warming up your vehicle in the morning, please keep the door locked or stay with the vehicle. Your warm unattended vehicle makes a very inviting target for someone on a long cold walk. Most vehicles in Lincoln that are stolen are the result of cars left unlocked with the keys in the vehicle.

Be vigilant in your neighborhoods. On-line purchases that are delivered to your home are convenient for you and those who follow delivery trucks. If you are expecting a high priced item to be delivered, ask for a neighbor to watch for the package so it does not disappear. The simple acts of locking a door and watching your neighborhood can prevent crime.

Happy Holidays,

Sgt. John Walsh #1272
