From CMPD Eastway RA3 newsletter I hope you are all enjoying the warm weather that has finally arrived. I know I am.
With warmer weather moving in, we typically see an increase in foot traffic throughout our area;
and, unfortunately, we also tend to see an increase in criminal activity.
That being said, here are some tips to maintain your level of awareness and
hopefully increase your safety as you are out and about this spring.
If possible, don’t walk alone.
Walk with a purpose.
If leaving a store and walking to your car, have your keys in hand for two reasons:
You can use them as a weapon if need be.
Keeps you from fidgeting around for them while standing at your car,
unaware of your surroundings.
Keep an eye on your neighborhood.
Let your neighbors know when you’ll be out of town.

America's Historical Documents
The history of the United States of America began long before the Colonists declared their independence.
The Magna Carta, written in 1215 in order to try to convince King John of England to give the people certain rights,
is generally considered to be the touchstone of liberty, upon which later documents are based.
The links below will take you to America's Historic Documents. These are the pieces of history upon which our nation was founded,
and within which our current liberty is rooted.
If you have not read these or remember what they are, then you need to read.
