A number of break-ins have been occurring in the City of Westlake recently. In an exchange with an Auxiliary Police Officer, it appears as if a number of these break-ins are taking place during the late afternoon / early evening hours, including Fridays and Saturdays.
In response to this, the Auxiliary Officers will be increasing patrols in neighborhoods.
Please pay special attention as holiday parties may give opportune time for a car / individuals to go unnoticed in a neighborhood.
Please DO NOT HESITATE to contact the WPD if you suspect anything suspicious in your neighborhood, i.e. strange cars, people using things to carry items which are unusual (pillowcases, etc.), 'solicitors' without approved City documents. The non-emergency number is 440-871-3311. For an emergency and / or dangerous situation, call 911.
