Three cheers and a big "Thank You" to our Danville Police Department. Strategic thinking foiled these culprits. Hopefully. criminals will think twice before deciding Danville is "easy pickings".

Unfortunately, Danville is "easy pickings" for criminals. There are so many here that think we live in such a nice place that they don’t have to take precautions. Criminals know there is money here, so we need to lock our doors, hide our valuables, be aware of our surroundings, & report anything suspicious.

I agree with Marie's comments. Crime knows no boundries, with the criminal element being highly mobile, Danville unfortunately receives the "easy pickings" moniker! Since moving to Danville in 1993, I've seen crime increase, in relation to the town's population growth. Some individuals refer to Danville as "The Bubble", where life is "politically correct", thus, supposedly shielded from the rest of the outside world! Furthest from the truth can a statement be. People need to be aware of their surroundings, noting any unfamiliar/suspicious individuals or vehicles they see in their neighbourhood, and promptly report the activity to the authorities. An additional item to inhibit home burglaries: Never leave your garage door open, even if you're in the house. This provides an open invitation for "easy pickings".
