Isle of Hope Crime Problems

Several residents living in Isle of Hope don't feel safe any more. A couple living in the area decided their community needed a wakeup call after both of their cars were burglarized in their own driveway. The couple called police and organized a community meeting.

More than 80 people showed up to voice their concerns about the burglaries, car break-ins and car thefts in their island neighborhood. "The more I talked to people in the community, the more we found this happening all over Isle of Hope," said crime victim Lee Hughes.

Police offered advice and residents asked for more police presence. They even decided to start a neighborhood watch program.
