NCCPD Introduces a New Public Safety Awareness Campaign "Park Smart"





CITIZEN ALERT : NCCPD Introduces a New Public Safety Awareness Campaign "Park Smart"



        
NCCPD Introduces a New Public Safety Awareness Campaign "Park Smart"

New Castle County Police is introducing a new initiative in the fight against the continual rise of vehicle break-ins as a result of automobiles being left unsecured.  

Each year across the United States approximately $1.255 billion in personal items and accessories are stolen from vehicles. More than half of the break-ins police investigate involve vehicles that were either unlocked or had no signs of forced entry. In addition, while parking lots may be targeted by some thieves, a closer look at the statistics show more than 60 percent of vehicle break-ins this year happened on residential streets, driveways or in County or State parklands.

Colonel E.M. Setting understands that property crime is as much of a problem for law enforcement agencies as it is for the public. With the implementation of the Chief’s T.A.P.S. (Targeted Analytic Policing System) program, we have seen an overwhelming reduction in crime throughout the County as we have been focusing on “Quality of Life” crimes. The introduction of the “PARK SMART” campaign is now the first step in Colonel Setting’s focus on attacking the property crime epidemic.

“I want our residents help in ensuring that they lock their car doors and in removing any valuable items from their vehicles so that these crimes of opportunity diminish,” Colonel Setting said. The “PARK SMART” campaign will provide worthwhile material to our residents with the hope that they will become more involved and not be the next victim.”

The New Castle County Police Department is launching this Public Safety Awareness Campaign to inform citizens about “PARK SMART”. The goal of the campaign is to provide useful information to our citizens on ways to reduce the likelihood of them becoming the victims of criminals breaking into their vehicles and stealing their possessions.

During the holiday season, police departments across the country see a spike in vehicle break-ins due to victims leaving more property in their vehicles as a result of holiday shopping.  Becoming more educated and Parking Smartly will reduce the likelihood of you becoming one of those victims.

The New Castle County Police Department will be posting our “PARK SMART” signs in various locations throughout New Castle County, to include our County parklands and libraries. We will also be posting our “Smart Tips” on our website and our other social media sites.

The Park Smart campaign is simple:

Lock your vehicle


Secure your valuables


Take keys with you


Below are some tips that we hope you will keep in mind every time you part your vehicle.

Never leave any type of bag or suitcase in the car. Thieves will smash a window just to see what is inside those items.

Never attempt to hide anything by covering it with a blanket or coat. That’s an open invitation to thieves.
Remove any attachments; cell phone or iPod chargers and cords are a dead giveaway that there is usually something of value inside the vehicle.

ALWAYS lock your doors, even if you make a quick stop. Thieves are very quick at getting in and out of your car and they always have an eye out for people who are in a rush.

Cash/coins, purses, iPods, Laptop computers, tools and cell phones are the most commonly stolen item, followed by GPS devices, CD’s and vehicle stereos.

Park in an open, well-lit, and populated area near your destination, preferably one in view of a security camera.

Avoid parking near strangers who are loitering or sitting in vehicles.

If you have access to a garage, USE IT! By parking your vehicle on the street, in an alley or even on your driveway, the opportunity exists for you to become a victim.  If you have no other choice, avoid dark and isolated areas.

If your vehicle has a Remote Keyless Entry (RKE), you still need to ensure that all the doors are locked before leaving your vehicle, especially in public parking lots. There has been an increase in the use of jammers to prevent the RKE signal from activating the door locks.

If your vehicle has an alarm system, always check your vehicle if you hear the alarm sound. Never try to stop a criminal who is attempting to gain entry into your vehicle.  Be the best possible witness and get a good description of the person and call 9-1-1.

Avoid parking near trucks, vans, dumpsters, and other objects that will obstruct visibility and provide hiding places.

New Castle County Police Department Alert - NCCPD Warns Residents of ?Jury Duty? Phone Scam




CITIZEN ALERT

        
NCCPD Warns Residents of ?Jury Duty? Phone Scam


New Castle County Police are investigating several phone scams where the caller identifies himself as an employee of the Courthouse and attempts to collect money from the individual for missing Jury Duty.

Over the past several days, County Police have been investigating several phone scams that have been reported regarding an individual that has been identifying himself as “Aaron Foster” from the Courthouse. The subject then proceeds to advise the individual that there has been a warrant issued for his/her arrest for missing Jury Duty. The subject then tells them to prevent being arrested, he/she needs to pay $100 over the phone.

New Castle County Police wants the public to know that no court representative will call your home asking for money over the phone. People who are called should not give out any personal or financial information and report the incident immediately to authorities. The agency is asking for everyone to be on alert and those who have been involved in a similar scam, are asked to call our non-emergency number at 302-573-2800.

This phone scam has been prevalent across country and we want to remind citizens that phone scams are a seemingly easy way for dishonest people to get money from unsuspecting consumers. The scammers are interested in learning your personal information, such as your Social Security number and birth date. They will also try to get your financial information, such as your bank account or credit card number. Knowing how to recognize a phone scam will help you to protect your money and/or becoming a victim of identity theft.  

Anyone with questions as to the validity of a telephone call from any alleged court official, or if they want to confirm their status regarding Jury Duty, is asked to call the courthouse at 302-255-0824.  You can also go to their website at http://courts.delaware.gov/.

To offer any other information regarding this investigation, please contact the New Castle County Police Department at 395-8110. You can also submit crime tips anonymously by going to www.NCCPD.com and following the link for Tips and Alerts. You will be asked for a subject line, the location the tip applies to, and your tip information. You may also attach a photograph. Citizens may also provide text tips by texting the key word NCCPD followed by your tip to 847411 (TIP411). Tipsters may also call Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333.

NCCPD Apprehends Two Males, Charged with Breaking into Vehicles, Community of Woodland Park

New Castle County Police Department
NCCPD Apprehends Two Males, Charged with 
Breaking into Vehicles,Community of Woodland Park

New Castle County Police have arrested two subjects in connection with numerous thefts from unsecured motor vehicles that occurred during the overnight hours of Sunday (11/03) into Monday (11/04). They have been charged with multiple counts of burglary, theft and tampering with a vehicle as a result of their crime spree. 

(Wilmington, DE.) Early Monday (11/04) morning at 3:00 a.m., County Police responded to the intersection of Hillside Avenue and Maine Avenue for a report of two male subjects attempting to gain access to several vehicles in the community of Woodland Park and one of the subjects was carrying a backpack.  When officers arrived, they observed two subjects, later identified as Michael Flickenger and Todd Drozdowski, walking in the area and Drozdowski was seen carrying a backpack. A bag of fireworks was also found in their possession.

Moments later, officer discovered the backpack contained numerous GPS units, cellular phones, a computer, a bottle of prescription medication, coins and miscellaneous personal items. Flickenger was then found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana.

As a result of their investigation, officers were able to ascertain that there were numerous victims that had their unsecured vehicles entered and property taken. Police were then able to confirm that the items found in the backpack were those that had been removed from the below listed vehicles and the property was returned to the owners.


2001 Ford Escape at a home in the 2000 block of Wildwood Drive.

2007 Toyota Camry at a home in the 2000 block of Wildwood Drive.

2011 Subaru Outback at a home in the 2100 block of Wildwood Drive.

2004 Dodge Ram at a home in the 100 block of Glenoak Drive.

2009 Ford F-150 at a home in the 100 block of Glenoak Drive.

2010 Toyota Tacoma at a home in the unit block of Woodbury Court.

2003 Chevy Malibu at a home in the 2100 block of Lori Drive.

2005 Jeep Laredo at a home in the 100 block of Walls Avenue







Michael Flickenger, a 25 year old male who resides in the 200 block of Webb Street in Wilmington, was charged with seven counts of burglary in the third degree, conspiracy in the second degree, seven counts of theft, seven counts of tampering with vehicle, possession of fireworks, loitering and possession of marijuana.  He was arraigned and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institute after failing to post $26,501.




Todd Drozdowski, a 29 year old male who resides in the 4500 block of Tarry Lane in Wilmington, was charged with eight counts of burglary in the third degree, conspiracy in the second degree, seven counts of theft, eight counts of tampering with vehicle, possession of fireworks, loitering and attempting to acquire a controlled substance. He was arraigned and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institute after failing to post $30,501.

County Police remind citizens’ that is extremely important for residents to continually secure their vehicles and to remove any valuable items from their automobile. If you feel compelled to keep property inside of your vehicle, then we urge you to take the necessary precaution and keep the items out of plain view or place them in your trunk.  Police urge the public to take responsibility in locking your car doors so that these crimes of opportunity subside, which will lead to fewer people becoming victimized.

The greatest protections thieves have are when citizens inadvertently forget to take simple crime prevention measures such as locking your car and securing valuables. If you are a victim of these types of crimes, the police need to be called after every instance. These reports are valuable to not only helping police solve the crimes and return the property to its owners, but also in guiding the police in their patrol initiatives.

Request for Help With an Important Study

September 13, 2013

Dear Nonprofit Leader,
As you are probably aware, open government efforts have made more information available online for use by citizens, organizations and communities.   If that information is useful, it is worth the investment.  If it is not useful or is too difficult to use, then changes need to be made.  We are hoping that the information we gather can be used to make the open government effort more successful. Your response to this questionnaire will help us learn more about how nonprofit organizations in Delaware use information provided by state and federal government transparency websites.
Your organization was selected because you are involved in the policy process in Delaware.  We selected organizations that reported to the State Public Integrity Commission that employ a lobbyist to represent you. This suggests that you are involved in the policy process and are in a good position to appreciate the potential of these information sources and to know how well the sources are fulfilling their potential.
This questionnaire is confidential and we will only release the information gathered in sets of figures where an individual response would be impossible to identify.  Participation is completely voluntary.
To participate, please click on the link below:

https://delaware.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0AjThSiDNYdjn5b

The Lynam Log HouseLynam House at the SmithsonianAs you can plainly see by reading the pages of this blog -- or, if you want to shell out the big bucks, by actually driving around -- there are many historic houses all around Mill Creek Hundred. Probably far more than most people realize. But, did you know there is one historic MCH house not in MCH? For most of forty years*, the Lynam Log House was on display to the world at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, in exhibits about the early years of the country. Its significance to the nation laid in its archetypal form for the era. Its significance for us, in addition to that, lies in its connections to several of the oldest families in the state, as well as a brief but important link to one of the most prominent in the area. ..........

His Dad, Al Sr., and his brother Wilmer “Rudy” operated it and the one on Maryland Ave. and Boxwood Rd.

I have been on “Memories of Wilmington” facebook page, the News Journal, Delaware Historical Society and everyone he knows up there.  (We are in Seaford)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Subject Arrested for Thefts from Vehicles By New Castle County PoliceDepartment





New Castle County Police have arrested 27-year-old Patrick Ryan after he was found to be in possession of stolen GPS units.  Officers were able to locate the owners of several of the stolen units and return them. The items were taken from unlocked vehicles parked in the community of Brookland Terrace.  

(Wilmington, DE)  On Tuesday (8/6) at 4:18 am, County Police responded to the community of Highland West after a resident called 911 to report a suspicious subject in the area.  Upon arrival, officers found a vehicle driving away from the community.  Officers stopped the vehicle and spoke to a subject later identified as Ryan.  Upon initial contact with Ryan, he provided a false name to the officers.  Officers continued their investigation and discovered seven GPS units in Ryan’s possession.  They were able to turn on some of the units which allowed them to locate three homes in Brookland Terrace from which they had been stolen.  The owners of these units were unaware that their property had been stolen until contacted by police.  The officers retuned the GPS units to those victims that could be identified. 

Ryan, who resides in the community of The Woods (Newark, DE), was charged with one count of felony Theft (due to the victim being over 62-years-of-age), two counts of misdemeanor Theft, one count of Criminal Impersonation and one count of Night Prowling.  He was arraigned by J.P. Court 2 and released on $7,500 unsecured bond.  He was also ordered by the Court to not have contact with any of the victims.

Police continue to attempt to identify the owners of the remaining GPS units.  Anyone in the area who may have had items stolen from their vehicle is asked to report the incident to police by calling 573-2800

County Police again remind the public that simple actions such as locking vehicle doors and keeping valuables out of sight are easy and effective crime prevention measures. 

This incident also serves as another example of the valuable role each citizen can play to stop crime.  The immediate call to 911 from a resident in Highland West to report a suspicious subject was one of the key factors in solving these crimes.

New Castle County Police Department Alert - National Night Out - Tuesday 8/6

New Castle County Police To Host the 30th Annual National Night Out

New Castle County Police along with the Western, Northern and Central District County Police Advisory Councils and Target © are proud to be working together to host this year’s National Night Out.

The event will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in New Castle County’s Banning Park, 800 E. Newport Pike, Wilmington, DE 19804.  The event will be held rain or shine. 

Each year, National Night Out events are held across America to allow citizens and their police departments to display their continued partnerships formed to stop crime.  This event helps to heighten crime and drug prevention, generates support and participation in local anti-crime programs, strengthens the bond between the communities and the police and sends a message to the criminal element that the police and neighborhoods are united in efforts to stop crime.

New Castle County Executive Tom Gordon, former Colonel of the NCCPD, said National Night Out was a natural complement to his administration’s aim of maintaining its beautiful, regional parks for all to enjoy.

“We want families to able to enjoy County parks safely and securely,” Gordon said. “That’s why we’ve stepped up police patrols in County parks to ensure they remain peaceful areas for family oriented recreation.”

Scheduled for this year’s event are: the County Police Mounted Patrol Unit, free food, cooling stations from Artesian Water and displays from Target ©, Delaware Crime Stoppers, Delaware Air National Guard, Domestic Violence Coordinating Council, State Fire Marshal’s office, Delaware Office of Highway Safety, United States Marshal Service, American Red Cross, Consumer Product Safety, SPCA and the New Castle County 911 Mobile Command Center.  The First State Band will be performing live at the event. 

“Our communities are the best partner the police have to stop crime,” New Castle County Police Chief Col. Elmer Setting said.  “National Night Out allows the police and our communities to showcase their continued partnership to reduce crime and make New Castle County even stronger.”

The event is open to the public.  There will be activities for children and adults.  For more information, please contact the County Police Community Services Unit at(302) 395-8050.
