Kelsey Roady started this petition to City of Mesquite Police Department

   I’m petitioning to increase the amount of patrol cars during the nightly hours of 11 PM to 7 AM to be done in the neighborhoods of Creek Crossing, Pecan Creek and Falcons Lair. We in the neighborhood have become victims to nightly vehicle theft, property theft, trespassing, attempted break ins and occasionally crimes involving fire arms. There are almost daily reports on Ring, Next Door and Facebook in reporting of these crimes. I have spoken to police and even if we catch the thief on camera checking car doors it isn’t a crime until the vehicle is stolen. Even then they can only be arrested if caught in the vehicle. The Mesquite Police Department is well aware of the rise in crimes and yet no one has been arrested and our crime rate continues to go up. If there is no punishment for their actions then the criminals will continue to violate our property and we remain unsafe. We personally are having to rekey the house and car now after having our vehicle stolen with a house key in it. This feeling of violation is extremely uneasy. Home is where we are supposed to be safe.

   I am asking those of you who have also been a victim of crime in our neighborhood or who feel unsafe in their own home at night to sign this petition. Together we can make a difference and keep our family and property safe. We can start to sleep easier at night. 

   We believe it is the city’s duty to protect its citizens.
