Crime Prevention News, Etc.

Neighborhood News:  I’ve received no reports of any crime/safety issues occurring in the neighborhoods around Henderson Road.  (Jenni)

Auto Theft Prevention 

The DeKalb Police Department’s Auto Theft Unit wants to stop thieves in their tracks.  In an effort to ensure citizens are informed and protected, two proactive programs have been implemented.



Note:  Sgt. Slade with the DKPD’s Auto Theft Unit will be sending more information on the programs.  I’ll forward this information to the hendersonroad.com distribution list for determining community interest.  (Jenni) 

Code Ordinances and Enforcement 

Recently, one of my neighbors was approached by two different sales representatives for the same gutter guard company within the same hour.  Not only were the sales representatives duplicating efforts, but their identification and company vans weren’t clearly marked.  Curious, my neighbor made a call to the Police and learned the company had not obtained a proper permit for door-to-door sales.  The Police followed up with the company while they were still in the area. 

Did you know there is a DeKalb County ordinance for door-to-door sales?  See Municode.com and “Chapter 15 Licenses, Permits and Miscellaneous Business Regulations” / “Article VII. Peddlers, Door-to-Door Sales and Similar Occupations”
