March Corcoran Watch

This reporting period has seen a drop in crimes in our neighborhood that have been reported to the MPD. A reminder that non-emergency, non-urgent crime reporting can be done via the City of Minneapolis’ 311 service. This includes things such as, reporting abandoned vehicles, graffiti, etc. You can also file an online police report for non-urgent crimes that fall within certain criteria.  http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/police/report/eReport

This month's crime map covers Mid-January 2016 to Mid-February. All statistics are sourced from the Minneapolis Police Department, 3rd precinct from our sector's Crime Prevention Specialist Karen Notcsch (karen.notsch@minneapolis.gov).

March Public Safety/Upkeep

The weather is starting to turn and enter that period of craziness that is spring in Minnesota. We can have warm weather one day and two feet of snow the next. As the weather warms and the snow melts or it even rains, everything of winter is revealed. This is a good time to clean up your neighborhood and/or alley!

CERT Disaster Preparedness Tip of the Month

As spring approaches we enter a period of severe weather. It is a good time to review your disaster preparedness plans (all CERT documents can be found here: https://www.fema.gov/training-materials). Make sure your flashlights have batteries. You have a weather radio if possible. You and your family know where to go in your home in the event of severe weather like a tornado or dangerous thunderstorms. Make sure you have a disaster preparedness kit that includes flashlight (with batteries or hand powered), water enough for all members of the family for three days (including pets) and easily kept food like canned goods. A full list of suggestions can be found on the FEMA webiste (https://www.fema.gov/media-library-data/1390846764394-dc08e309debe561d866b05ac84daf1ee/checklist_2014.pdf).
