Mountain Brook and Vestavia Hills are seeing similar numbers. Earlier this month, Mountain Brook police urged residents to be alert after eight break-ins were reported in a two-week span, and 14 since Sept. 1.
The increase began showing up last month (in Homewood), and Police Chief Dodd said the city has seen about 12 home burglaries in a two-week span. There have also been a higher number of car break-ins.
The residential burglaries have gone up even before the holiday season where these law enforcement agencies says the peak time of the year for such incidents.
What ashame, but that's what happens when you believe your suburban community is immune to crime. Birmingham isn't the only one that has this issue.
Hoover is copying Birmingham after it announced last week that there would be a dog park opening at George Ward Park. Now Hoover wants to open a dog park at Loch Haven Park in the Loch Haven subdivision. However, about 20 people attended the park board meeting, and most opposed putting the dog park there. Some of the residents said they wanted to leave the park as it is and that adding a dog park would disrupt the tranquil neighborhood feel of the park and bring too much traffic there. There was zero opposition to the George Ward dog park... LMAO
The Hoover municipal government is copying Birmingham, but obviously the C.A.V.E.-dwellers (citizens against virtually everything) in Hoover doesn't want anything in their part of the world because it would "change" everything. Boy, some (white) people in the Greater Birmingham area are funnier than a sitcom at their whining. They always try to compete with Birmingham, but never want to work with Birmingham hence why there is zero regional cooperation...
