Community Patrol reminds residents to double-check their vehicle doors and windows each evening and be sure alarm systems are activated. Records show most thefts from vehicles in Canyon Lake occur because doors were left unlocked or windows left open. They also advise residents to not leave items of value in front yards or driveways. Open cars and valuables left outside can lead to “crimes of opportunity” that can be easily prevented. If a crime is in progress, call 9-1-1 before calling Community Patrol at 951-244-6841, ext. 410.

Marine Patrol stats are as follows: three boat inspections, 38 fishing license/permit checks, three boat tows and a total of two escorted hours.
