PLEASE CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY WHEN SAFE TO DO SO TO REPORT A SUSPICIOUS PERSON OR ANYTHING THAT APPEARS TO BE SUSPICIOUS IN NATURE. This is just one of many reason why the police department exists and what we get paid to do. The police department is not bothered by these types of calls. We would much rather check on someone and find out their business than take a report of items being stolen from you or your neighbor. Please help us help you and the Crafton Community. We request your assistance and appreciate you also helping us “be the eyes” of this community. Remain forever vigilant.
