Opinion: Robberies becoming more alarming

I have been living in La Jolla for a year and a half and I (am concerned about) the increase of robberies in La Jolla. Indeed, I am living on Rutgers Road and a few friends of mine who are close neighbors had been robbed, either their cars were broken or robbers entered the house while they were away and stole jewels and console video games. I also have friends in a gated community on Soledad Mountain who had been robbed.

I am very disappointed to see that the police don’t seem to make any effort to prevent this from happening. Also I am really surprised that there is no sign on the street telling people that a crime took place in this area with a phone number.

Furthermore, I have the feeling that people from our neighborhood are not willing to volunteer to patrol, which would be a great idea. Also having a sign on our street warning everybody that our street is watched would help.

If there is anything you could do to get people act against crime would be great.
