... #ad▼

Arlington Heights police report that late Saturday, March 12, 2015, a suspect was captured on video surveillance prying open vehicles parked inside of the underground parking garage located at 810 Shady Way, Arlington Heights.

The suspect carried a black backpack and walked with a distinct bowlegged gait.

At times he was wearing a camouflage jacket and a black knit hat.

A burglary was reported on Sunday, March 13, 2015 on Shady Way after an unknown offender or offenders entered the victim’s 2008 black Nissan Sentra and removed an unknown amount of change.

The crime was reported to have occurred between Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 2:00 PM and Friday, March 13, 2015 at 6:45 AM. The elapsed time range including the time the crime could have occurred is 16:45 (hours: minutes).


Cardinal Note: As of June 5, 2013 — up to and including the date of this article — police incidents related to the above police agency are not reported in real time or within a prompt time period. Police protecting their realm of investigation and police activity, have chosen to use secret military-grade encrypted radios to withhold their police communications, which were previously open to the public and news media via monitoring of public safety scanning radios — with no known negative results locally.

The delayed knowledge or entirely blacked out knowledge resulting from encrypted police communications may protect certain police operations and investigations, but it also puts the public at risk in situations such as when armed and dangerous offenders are at large and when other similar situations occur, such as when desperate offenders of property crimes are eluding police. In other cases, the delayed or blacked out information inhibits or prohibits the possibility of the public providing early witness accounts before a criminal trail goes cold. Citizens are much more likely to recognize or recall suspicious or criminal activity if they are aware of the criminal incident within minutes or hours of its occurrence. The most serious incident involving dire results would be a trail that is allowed to go cold in the case of child abduction.

The lack of real time information from public police dispatch also weakens an effective neighborhood watch program mostly working to prevent property loss, but also working to prevent possible violent crimes.

Lack of real time information from police dispatch also delays public awareness or eliminates public awareness of general hazards and traffic or other situations in every day living in an otherwise economically thriving community.

Police have alternate ways to transmit tactical, operational or investigative information, while still keeping their main public dispatch channels open for the best balance of public safety and police safety.
