Theft Prevention Tips

The key to preventing theft from vehicles starts with YOU!

Nobody wants to be a victim of crime, but if you leave your purse, computer, tools or other valuable items in your auto, you’re increasing the risk that you will become a theft-from-vehicle victim.

Many thefts from vehicles are the result of people leaving their car doors unlocked or leaving items of value in the car where would-be thieves can easily spot them. The message- if thieves can see it, they will steal it.

Protecting Your Mail

Postal Inspectors across the country work hard to protect your mail. But with deliveries to more than 100 million addresses, the Postal Inspection Service can't do the job alone.

Here's what you can do to protect your mail from thieves:

National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation

Tucson climbed to 1st place today in its category in the 2015 National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation, with little more than three days remaining.
 
Now, we need to defend that position and demonstrate that Tucson knows how to conserve water. People can pledge online for Tucson at www.mywaterpledge.com through April 30, which takes just a couple of minutes.
 

Broadway: Camino Seco to Houghton

Broadway: Camino Seco to Houghton project was moved up on the RTA schedule.

The Broadway widening project from Camino Seco to Houghton Road is in Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Third Period (2017 to 2021) with plans to widen the roadway to a four-lane roadway with bicycle lanes and sidewalks.

The section of Broadway between Camino Seco and Harrison is in the poorer pavement condition of the two sections. The Ward 2 office is keenly aware of the condition of this stretch of Broadway and we have had several conversations on addressing this section.
