  1. I have a neighbor who travels regularly. He has the police check his home while he’s away. I can say that I do witness the police checking his home as requested. So, this is a great service that the police offer for free and they do complete them.

  2. Never ever put a food bowl for a Lab down on the other side of a clean window or French door. Learned that lesson the hard way.

  3. The police have a camera set up on that street and take pictures of everyone going up the street. They have a picture, but will they do the investigation work required to single them out?

    • Howdy, John… thanks for writing. They haven’t seemed shy about investigating/arresting past offenders… but manhunting can be harder than they make it seem on NCIS Miami! We shall see.
