Which CPC page? Facebook?

Still wondering why no one has launched a Midlothian CPC app for those wanting to keep an eye on these types of reports in our community. Sure radio scanners are a source, but the police can't be eating up airtime putting out the details as Valerie so effectively did.

I would think putting a $.99 price tag on something like that would be an app at least some residents would be interested in subscribing to.

It would be better than having nothing but Topix to turn to when we're talking about timeliness of events

It's a nice idea, but the police would be the ones to do that. Some towns already are.

Apps have to be coded, and that can be costly. If one place were to come out with a viable app to contact the nearest police (unlike the Dolton one that is only for Dolton and available in Dolton) then I think more PDs would get on board. Right now there's not much out there that I've seen.

I remember reading something about this several years ago. I think maybe it was Country Club Hills. It wasn't an app thing to notify residents but a text thing where people could submit tips. I don't recall if it could accept pictures or not.

Don't we have thst system to notify residents by phone of important things? Why can't they use thst for things such as this! Was this ever in the paper? I like the app idea. Someone is going to make money with thst one.

I like the app idea too. If they make it truly anonymous I think more people will feel like reporting things.

I remember reading something about a local town using an app like it, but in my quick search this morning I could not find it. If I see anything else I'll come back and post it.

You're right though. There will be a lot of money in it for the right app.

people get wrongly accussed all the time ! Although if people would think before wrongfully accusing someone and hurting their character , this town would be a lot better!!! don't point your finger if the direction is not correct !

I talked to the police the very next day after my post..and they too would have thought it could have been either of the moore twins but the victim's description if the male's skin tone was too dark..if you had any clue of the "character" of the moore twins you would know they do enough on their own of hurting their "character"..do yourself a favor and go the police station and ask any cop about the moore twins... I don't expect you to ... you would find out any person with contact with those twins would suspect them ...

I think that's not fair to the twins for the fact that I know them and their window was never busted out. they are honestly hard working young men. and they have no reason for petty theft. especially a ac unit. that's pure slander of their names. they might get in trouble for fighting or getting drunk sometimes but thieves they are not.

Im going to squash this very quick. It was not the twins. I looked up their picture via facebook as soon as someone mentioned them (the internet is a lovely thing)and it wasn't them. The guy did look similar but it wasn't them.
As for the description of the guy, I never once said he was dark or darker or anything to that matter. I stated he was a young white male. I am not sure who you talked to at the police department but that description was never given.
As for an update- there is none. I did go in and speak to a detective who was very helpful and eager to help get this punk but he was never caught. Who knows, they could have been from a different town for all we know.
All I can say is watch out for one another. Report things. Call the police. I called the non emergency number the first time and they were here in minutes.
Be safe & take care of one another...

That is one crazy night Val, but I too wonder if they came back twice why a copy didn't stay behind (maybe in the house or yard?). Seems they must have thought they weren't stupid enough to come back a third time, but clearly they were!
You two sure got a piece of them though! Nice job.
And yes, it's been added to the CPC page this morning so hopefully more people will see that if they don't come here.
Read the post goofy>>> the police took the air conditioner unit with them for safe keeping. Also has it occurred to you that the police have 14,000 other residents to attend to???

Hey emperor, I did read the post. You didn't really read my post. Just because they took the unit doesn't mean the culprits wouldn't come back. They clearly were dumb enough.

And btw, just because there are more people in town doesn't mean on that given night they too were calling for help. If the cops were busy I totally get that, but if they weren't it could have been a good idea to wait a few minutes to see if they return. You sir are a jerk!

And to the fake Wondering Why, you are also a jerk.:) Have a nice time playing in the snow boys.:)

Nice. The fake WW wants me to think the whole TOWN hates me! Woohoo! I must be awesome!!

Seriously though. I never said anyone hated me, village employees or otherwise. You really need to step up your game a little. I wasn't born yesterday bub.
