    Bwt-"Perhaps Cary Police should step up their patrol enforcement in addition to citizens being more safety proactive?"

    Step up their patrolling would require them to not be in kangaroo in morrisville all night. I go in to get coffee and see 3-4 of them in there some nights just standing around...

    Now why would you leave your laptop or purse inside a vehicle ? Sounds a little like the value of items might be overestimated.

    How can one have clouded personal perception of safety with a vast escalation in town crime stats? Murders to date, shootings, thefts, etc.

    Wow, now here's a story worth publishing. Numnuts leave laptops and purses in cars and they get stolen. Who'da thunk it?

    If you have a misconception that you are unsafe, that's how. Personal perception can cloud judgement.

    The Chief was trying to convey that even if you are safe, but you perceive that you are not, then they need to work on that. Note, it's not like they just want you to feel safe, they want you to be safe AND to feel safe.

    Never said they faked them...that wouldnt make any sense to add crime stats to their perfectly safe town. That was her statement on another article, do some research.

    And if you are "perfectly safe" how could you not feel safe???

    You're right, Cary PD faked some break ins to draw attention away from other things.

    As for your commentary on an unknown quote attributed to the Chief of CPD, It sounds like you took something out of context. Either way it doesn't matter. You already have an opinion on CPD, so it doesn't matter what you think. Don't like them? Then please, by all means stay out of Cary. We don't want any more unsavory characters than we already have.

    I live in Cary and feel perfectly safe. I feel just as safe in Raleigh when I'm there. I feel as safe as my surroundings allow me to feel. If I'm in a bad part of town I'm probably not going to feel very safe, just as if I'm in a good part of town and there are people there making it an unsafe environment I'm probably not going to feel safe.

    Way to take it out of context.

    The statement was meant to convey that even if you are perfectly safe, if you do not feel safe then the police aren't doing their job. It was poorly worded, for sure, but in context it makes sense.
