Palo Alto Police Department
At a community meeting on Tuesday night, Palo Alto police tried to assuage the concerns of residents, as they said solving a recent home invasion robbery remains a priority for the department.
The Palo Alto City Council unanimously approved a deal on Monday night that will allow for nine of the city’s police officers to be equipped with body-mounted video cameras.
With a large increase in property crime in Palo Alto, police are now reminding residents to ‘lock it or lose it’.
Palo Alto saw a significant increase in home burglaries last year, police said, driven largely by the allure of gold.
