Officer Roberts Teaches How to Take a Bite Out of Crime
Officer Rachel Roberts was joined by colleagues from the Lewisville PD and incoming club president Dennis Song following her presentation at last week's Rotary meeting.
Officer Rachel Roberts, Neighborhood Resource Officer with the Lewisville PD, last week gave a helpful presentation on Crime Prevention and improving the safety of our local community.
“There are crimes and there are opportunities for crimes,” noted Officer Roberts, explaining that citizens can help mitigate opportunities for bad actors to do bad things. Prevention involves anticipating a potential opportunity and taking proactive steps to reduce the risk, she said. For example, if you’re going on vacation, you can ask a neighbor to pick up your mail and keep an eye on your house, confirm all windows and doors are locked, and set timers to turn lights on and off, to make it appear that someone is home.
“If you have a tight-knit community and you’re the nosey neighbor, it deters crime in your area,” Officer Roberts noted. Knowing your neighbors, being aware of who comes and goes from your street, and using an online forum (like a private Facebook group or the Nextdoor app) to share information also can help you and your neighbors stay safe. “A little less privacy is good for crime prevention,” Officer Roberts said.
Other tips include keeping shrubs no taller than 3’ and tree limbs no lower than 7’, so burglars can’t hide; adding a fence around your yard; and securing your garage door. Although it’s best to have a solid wood or wrought iron front door, for those with a glass pane, the glass should be at least 40” away from locks. Deadbolts on doors should be longer than a 1” throw, and two door locks are better than one, added Officer Roberts. In addition, having lighting around the exterior of the home and porch lights that turn on automatically when someone approaches the front door are good deterrents.
Cars are another prime target for crime. The Lewisville Police Department received 748 reports of burglaries of a vehicle last year, and 307 reports of stolen vehicles. More often than not, the owner has left the vehicle unlocked and/or left valuables in plain sight, making it an easier target for criminals. However, theft of catalytic converters also is on the rise in the area. To reduce the risk of having a catalytic converter stolen, you can have a garage etch the VIN number on the converter or have a guard installed underneath the vehicle, suggested Officer Roberts.

Driver Needed to Bring Students Back from RYLA
Sue Bowman still is looking for a volunteer to pick up three students from RYLA at Tarleton State in Stephenville and drive them back to Lewisville. RYLA is an intensive leadership development program through Rotary International designed to help raise up the next generation of young leaders. 
Pick up will be on Sunday, June 19 from Tarleton/Stephenville at 11:30am and arrive back to Lewisville High School at 1:30pm.
If you are available to drive, please contact Sue at (And a special shout out to Alex Buck, who volunteered to shuttle the students down to Stephenville on June 16th, so they can attend the event!)
Did You Miss a Meeting?
If you want credit for a make-up, contact LNR Membership chair Terry Russell to let him know when and where you attended another Rotary club meeting, or the date and service activity that you participated in to count as a make up. You have two weeks before and two weeks after a missed meeting to make up for your absence. Make-ups are a great way to meet Rotarians from other clubs and become more engaged with the outreach activities we do in the local community!
We are grateful that no club members currently have prayer requests, and we continue to petition the Lord to protect and prosper our community.

For any other prayer requests, please send to Audrey Stansbury at
