Those who live and work in Hendersonville are much more familiar with the normal activities that occur in their neighborhood or workplaces. They are better equipped to recognize activity or individuals that are not typical.

Another way to assist in detouring theft from vehicles is to make sure that valuables are removed from the passenger compartment of the vehicles. Locking your car doors will also prevent thefts. There have been several people arrested that later stated that they went through parking lots and driveways testing doors. They would not enter the vehicle unless the doors were left unlocked.

The Hendersonville Police Department continues to search for leads regarding an incident that was reported on May 23, 2016 at approximately 5:30 pm, in the Mansker Farms Community. During this incident a 10-year-old male juvenile reported that he was approached by a light skinned black male driving a white vehicle.

Those who prey on small children may take advantage of the summer time events. Everyone is encouraged to report any suspicious incident to the Hendersonville Police Department. It will always be our goal to deter criminal activity, especially that criminal activity that involves children.
