We saw an increase in vehicle break-ins this past month. When you travel this summer, law enforcement officers highly recommend that NO VALUABLES be left in an unattended car. Parked cars bearing out of state plates with lots of bags inside the car are particularly vulnerable. Some of the saddest stories are told by people that "left the car for just a few minutes to get a photo". Please remember, whether at home or travelling, DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES UNATTENDED. Generally, the actual vehicle break in is only the beginning of the crime spree. When computers, vehicle titles and credit cards are stolen then the problem only gets worse for the victim.
Our Citizen Patrol members are gearing up for another busy summer. We currently have 7 portable VHF radios that will allow Corbett to communicate with Multnomah County Emergency Management and other groups in the event of a natural disaster or other major incident. The radios have been tested and allow communication across the entire county and all of Corbett. The radios were donated and the parts and antennas were purchased with your $$ donations. We are always seeking donations for more equipment!
A parental reminder: parents are encouraged to monitor their child's online computer activity, whether it's through online gaming, chatting or on social media sites such as Facebook. This includes cell phone use and texting. Corbett kids are not immune when it comesto bullying and spiteful rumors. I've dealt with more online and Facebook issues this past year than all previous years combined. Now that summer is here please supervise your children and encourage them to engage in positive activities.
