But here's the problem: I haven't received mine yet (as of Monday April 15), and I've heard that I am not alone. If/when they do arrive, even if we complete them and drop them in outgoing mail immediately, they may miss the deadline.

But a recent crime surge shows that it takes more than slapping a police logo on a storefront window to keep crime in check. The lull of a false sense of security in Long Reach ended this summer when 15 to 20 people chased a man from the Long Reach Village Center to a residential street and stabbed him. Since that attack, the community has been rocked by incidents of assault, burglaries and vandalism.
