Some “Hoboken Crime Watch” we have!

Neighborhood Crime Watch sign vandalized in Hoboken

Are locals too busy with their smartphones and status updates to care about their neighborhoods these days?

The “Neighborhood Crime Watch” signs you see all over Hoboken (were) supposed to be crime deterrents. I mentioned this in the Hoboken police blotter on July 17th – when a home on Park Ave. was burglarized this past weekend.

This sign (if the criminal is even literate) reads: “We immediately report all suspicious activities to our police department.”

And look at the damn thing! It’s peppered with graffiti and stickers!

Unless, of course, the majority of residents no longer consider this kind of activity suspicious, but rather “business as usual.” Tsk, tsk!
