This is just another example of what can be accomplished through the partnership of the citizens and police. If it were not for the assistance of these alert witnesses this crime could have possibly gone unsolved. We are very grateful that we have this relationship with the public and we continue to encourage anyone who has information regarding criminal activity to contact the Hendersonville Police Department.

We also encourage anyone who observes suspicious activity to immediately contact the police department. 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. The Hendersonville Police Department would like the opportunity to react to suspicious incidents that may detour criminal activity.

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.
