The Saugus area has seen a decrease in part-1 crimes over the past five weeks. Violent crime has dropped dramatically with only 2 reported incidents as compared to 10 by this same time period last year. Property crime is also down with only 46 crimes reported this year as compared to 57 this time last year. The only increase in crime we have seen in the Saugus zone this year is in petty thefts with 7 additional crimes reported, in comparison to last year at this time. Please remember to lock your vehicles and take all items of value with you when leaving it unattended. Also, please remember that when out in a public setting it is dangerous to leave your valuables sitting on a table or unattended for any period of time. The majority of these are crimes of opportunity. The best way to prevent from becoming a victim of this type of crime is to never give the criminal an opportunity in the first place.
