Notice From Griffith Park Board
Notice From The Griffith Park Board
The Town of Griffith – Parks and Recreation Board is seeking $74,500 matching funds from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources via a grant from the Land and Water Conservation Fund to construct a new playground adjacent to Fire Station 3; 421 E. Ridge Road. Once approved by the State, the application and supporting material will be submitted to the National Park Service to receive Federal approval.
Griffith Police are warning residents to take steps to minimize the risk of criminals getting into their parked vehicles. Police took several reports of subjects getting into parked vehicles and taking loose change and other items over this past weekend.
Residents are encouraged to lock their doors, park in well lit areas if possible, and set their car alarms. Almost all of the incidents this past weekend were reported to have involved unlocked vehicles. Many people subscribe to the theory that if the vehicle is left un-locked, the suspect will not have to break the window to get in. However, it should be noted that no vehicles that were known to have been left locked in the areas of these thefts were found to have been damaged.
The Griffith Police are working on leads and taking active steps to combat this recent rash of thefts. Please be aware of things in your neighborhood and call 911 immediately if you see anything suspicious.
Anyone with information about these thefts is encouraged to call Commander Keith Martin at 219-924-7503 ext 257, or the Griffith Police Anonymous Tip Line at 219-922-3085.
