Hi I respect the fact that RAGLM does not want to post the license plate and/or description on the website and they might have reasons they don't wish to disclose.  However, this should not prevent us from communicating the information on a side note with one another.  I do think taking matters into our own hands is a solution, being proactive and vigilant is important.  It is a Federal crime BTW. If you have the plate and suspect description I will make fliers, you may send me a private message or to my email j-g_fanning@verizon.net.  I sent an email to RAGLM last night and although I was pleased with the quick reply I was not so satisfied with the actual written response. 

When I said we should have extra patrol, this simply meant patrol by deputies within their shift- to drive through our neighborhood and be visible.  This did not have anything to do with depleting a budget.  All police departments routinely conduct extra patrol requests.  I say this with confidence because I have worked with the police department for 20 years now as an officer, sergeant and detective.  Waiting to talk about a persistent crime problem at the next RAGLM seems to be a very passive attitude.  At Gavilan, we have had mail box break-ins and it went on for a while.  These thieves are obviously targeting our neighborhood for Identifty Theft/personal information.  I will request to meet with the captain of our local Sheriff's Department, and it won't be at the RAGLM mtg. I will also speak with the Chief Inv Riverside DA's office today for advice.
