The Broken Window theory is based on the idea that rundown areas invite petty crime because people think that no one cares. And petty crime leads to more serious crime because no one, especially the police, care about the neighborhood or area. The police receive more calls to these areas because the residents have more fear that things are out of control. So let’s keep our property and community in good working order! Don’t be afraid to pick up trash or branches off the street. I know times are tough for everyone but determination and caring doesn’t cost a dime!
