One of our members sent me a link to an article that reported an attack on one of our local business owners. The full article can be found here. This serves as a sober reminder that we must be vigilant at all times when out and about. This vilgilance apply to any neighborhood in any city.
Crime happens in all urban places in every city in America. I continue to view downtown Durham as one of the safest places in the city, but it's not immune to crime. If you've read this article and are considering what you can do to curb crime or are concerned about your personal safety, I invite you to attend the next PAC5 meeting. The meetings are always packed with tips and suggestions about what we should do to minimize the risk of becoming a victim.
Finally, if you have any information that might help bring the perpetrator(s) to justice, please contact CrimeStoppers.
