My car was broken into last night on Alton. I filed the police report and the very nice officer advised me to let everyone know - in case you didn't already. Luckily there was no damage, and nothing of value was taken.
Just wondering if anyone else has had vehicle break-ins in the area recently?
Happy Holidays to all.

I'm sorry to hear that your vehicle was broken into and you did the proper thing in reporting to us, unfortunetly that does not always happen. In an effort to address this on going issue of thefts from cars we are running a project called Garmin which involves both uniform and plainclothes officers, I had posted it prior to Christmas as well as sent out a media release. Once the project is complete I will make sure to post our results here on the Leslieviller.
The issue of thefts from cars is occuring all through out our division not just in Leslieville or Riverside so it is a moving target for us. For those who were asking about foot patrols I agree that is a useful tool in the community and those functions are performed by Community Response Officers who you will find most often riding bikes.
The Community Response Officers are also responsible for doing the primary policing at festivals such as Taste of the Danforth, Beaches Jazz in addition they are the officers called upon for protests and demo's such as Occupy Toronto so it takes them away from our communities.
If anyone has any questions or concerns about policing here at 55 Division feel free to contact me at (416) 808-5579 or email email@example.com.
I see the bait car being much more effective. You catch the people that are doing the crimes, instead of hiring people to walk around to try to prevent people that will eventually do the crimes. It's not like the City can hire an officer to stand on every street for every hour every day. Even if that happened, crime would still happen. As well, I don't think police should act as security personnel. I think catching these people would definitely send a message to the majority of them. The repeaters would eventually find themselves in front of a judge with repeated offences.
I had my car broken into last year and I brought a security camera system from Costco that records. They now sell a motion light that records onto an SD card right in the light, (only 80$ and easy to setup). I recommend this because it's probably the same few persons doing many of the break ins and the camera systems are not only good deterrents, but if something does happen there are images to post/hand to police. If there are enough of these units it could lead to an arrest.
Not that I've tested it, but Tech Source Canada (on Gerrard, west of Jones, North side) sold me a $15 webcam that's my FaceTime cam now. USB cams with software can have motion detection as well. Not sure about IR, but it is definitely getting cheaper. Software allows for wireless capture as well overnight, from a house computer. Use old computers to run this stuff if you can. Ah I have too many hobbies.
I noticed shattered auto glass on Fairford between Craven & Ashdale last week. I suspect something desirable was in plain sight, so the car was targeted. We've learned to leave our car virtually empty - no point in tempting fate.
Hey just saw this online thought it might be of interest to some of you
