Burglaries in Midtown - December 2012
The following information is from the Sacramento Police Department
(On or about December 20, 2012)
Hello Neighbors – Last night (Dec 19) there was a street Robbery in the area of 26th/H St.. Additionally, there were several street robberies last weekend (Dec 15-16) in the midtown area. All of the victims were walking in the area at night. The suspects in all of the robberies have been different, and they have all been in different areas of midtown. The only commonality is that... two of last weekend’s suspects were listed as “transients”. We were able to identify and arrest one of the “transient” suspects.
All week we have been concentrating our patrol efforts in the area. This extra staffing, and attention, will continue through this weekend. As always, please be aware of your surroundings and call the Police Department if you observe any suspicious people in the area.
Historic Properties Plaque Program
The City of Sacramento Historic Properties Plaque Program allows residential and commerical property owners to purchase a bronze plaque with the official city seal to recognize their historic property. Many Midtown neighborhoods are also historic districts. In the MNA boundaries there is the Winn Park, Capitol Avenue, Capitol Mansions, and 20th & N Street Historic Districts. In February 2010, the Sacramento City Council approved the program to recognize designated historic homes and commercial landmarks within the City of Sacramento. Owners of residential and commercial properties that are designated by the City of Sacramento as either a Historic Landmark or a Contributing Resource within a City-designated Historic District, as listed in the Sacramento Register of Historic & Cultural Resources, are eligible to apply for a Historic Property Plaque. The Sacramento Register is available online at
Sacramento Register of Historic and Cultural Resources (careful - it's a large PDF file)
For more information on how to apply for a placque and see a sample plaque for your home or commercial building, see the City of Sacramento's Community Development page

Graffiti - Ongoing Issues
Graffiti and litter removal is on ongoing problem and while it is more prevalent in warm weather, it is an all-year problem on the Grid. This is a reminder that if your property, incuding fences and dumpsters or trash cans are tagged, photograph (record), report and remove as quickly as possible. It is a hassle to repaint and repair but is essential to record, report and remove. The more reporting we do, the better the city can track where these incidences are occuring and better deploy resources to combat it. Photographs help the police identify local graffiti hot spots. Gang-related graffiti is forwarded to the Gang Unit for identification and intelligence purposes. If a trail of photographic evidence can be tied to a vandal who has been caught, it may raise the crime from a misdemeanor to a felony. And, leaving graffiti tags on your property is not only and eyesore and devalues property, it sends a powerful negative message that our neighborhoods are places in which neighbors don't care and thus taggers and possibly gang members can get away with their bad behavior. We must all do our part to keep our neighborhoods clean and safe.
