What is a welfare check?
Alena Phelps November 20, 2012 at 04:15 PM
Home invasions and burglaries are on the rise mostly due to the weak economy and high unemployment. People must take action to lower the chances of being victimized. Three of the best things you can do to protect yourself and your property is to reinforce your doors and windows, plus have a personal protection device. About 85% of burglars come through a door, so first you should reinforce your entry doors with a door security device such as the Door Security Pro - http://www.DoorSecurityPro.com. Second, about 15% of burglars come through a window and so you should install security window film and good window locks. And finally, you need to get some type of personal protection device in case you are ever confronted by an intruder. Pepper spray is a good choice because it's easy to use and it's highly effective.

When is the SRPD going to start monitoring speeding traffic on Bollinger Cyn between Alcosta and Doughterty? Speeds commonly exceed 60mph.

Home invasions and burglaries are on the rise because of the increase of drug use and the number of addicts incresing due to weak drug laws and the sham appearance of medical marijuana being legitimized. Californians and Coloradians need to wake up and realize marijuana is a gateway drug and should remain illegal. If not the amounts of drug addicts, crime, and overdoses will continue to rise.

It's when somebody calls the police because they believe someone's well-being is in danger, possibly in their own residence, a family/friend's residence, neighbor, etc. The police will usually send a patrol car out to investigate. There are also instances of where the police conduct welfare checks on their own because they may see a situation where there may be danger present. Say for example, you haven't heard from a family member within the past few weeks, even though they make pretty regular contact with you. You could call the police in the city they reside in, and they will send a patrol car over to check on the person. The police will investigate, and if necessary, enter the residence if there is any present danger. Another example would be like an officer sees a car that's pulled over on the side of road or in a parking lot that's been closed for the night. The officer will then investigate the car to see if the driver/passengers are in. They can question the driver and passengers; and they will assess any possible danger to the car occupants, the officer, or general public. A person can be arrested during a welfare check if they are found to be breaking the law. There was actually a person arrested for drug possession and DUI in Napa after a welfare check on the side of the road, pretty crazy stuff. Welfare checks differ on a case-by-case basis, but I hope this information helps in clarification.

I agree totally with you "G": If we do not do something about the drug problem in this area and get the residents heads out of the mud, things will get worse before they get better! When the drug addicts run out of resources at their home or work then they resort to others valuables to supply their drug problem. Nothing and no one is safe when it comes to drug addicts and their need for their drugs. So continue to be in denial, everyone, including our city officials, etc. and it will get even worse as you can see in other areas by all turning their heads and not facing what is right in front of you. Although I can understand the officials not wanting to clean it up because that is job security for them! Anyway, so much for that. So please lets think about what it is we can do as residents of this area to give access to the help that is needed for our residents here and have a place for them to go and get help, instead of having to travel to crime infested areas to seek the help they need and spend thousands of dollars that could very well be spent right here in our community to better the substance abuse problem. Come on, there are funds out there that can be better used. We won't need a city center pretty soon if you continue to ignore the drug problem here because when it gets really bad, no one will want to come here to patronize it! So I beg you, as a resident of almost 30 years here, I have seen changes for the worse not the better.
