Mid-month communications from your Johns Creek Police Department 
PACT (Police and Community Together)

As usual, the JCPD is investigating theft from vehicles. Most of the thefts last month were from unlocked cars in neighborhoods, at parks, and local schools.
While I was patrolling one of our parks I found two unoccupied SUV's with purses sitting in the front seats. I was able to locate the drivers, not within sight of the cars, and let them know of the hazards of what they did. One of the response's I got was that the owner knew better because she had already been a victim of vehicle theft.
Please do not let your guard down.

Got Drugs
Bring your unwanted or expired prescription drugs to the third annual National Take Back Prescription Drug initiative, Saturday, October 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Target at 5950 State Bridge Road.
The JCPD is hosting this local event, in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration, to properly and securely dispose of medications. They should NOT be flushed down the toilet.
Since the first event in September 2010, Americans have turned in 309 tons of unwanted or expired drugs at thousands of drop-off points across the country during National Take Back Prescription Drug Day. Questions, please call officer Mark Johnson at 678-474-1587. Read more.
P2C (Police-to-Citizen): online reporting - NEW
P2C (Police-to-Citizen)
The JCPD is offering a new online service center for filing and accessing reports. It's called P2C (Police-to-Citizen) and it can simplify the reporting process and eliminate a trip to police headquarters.
Even if you don't know a report/case number, you can still find an arrest, incident or traffic report with the system. A critical function of P2C is the ability to file a report for certain non-emergency incidents that occurred within Johns Creek.
In the near future, P2C will also have a Missing Persons function to help identify and report missing persons. Read more.
Child ID app from the FBI
FBI Child ID
A new, free mobile app from the FBI - Child ID - provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your child to immediately show authorities if your youngster goes missing.
You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily email the information to authorities with a few clicks.
The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.
