A question : are these crimes happening at nite or during the day? If at nite Perhaps shedding some lite on the problem - seaford and wantagh residents should invest in outdoor sensor lights for their homes because the incident rate is increasing hourly with little or no resolution in sight. That and BIG DOGS with BIG teeth! Another question has anyone been CAUGHT? I mean is anyone taking fingerprints, seeing if these are connected in anyway or do we just have a huge rise in standalone unrelated crimes. Either is scary but what is the 7th doing about it? Have patrols been increased or even more vigilant or is it still same ol same ol ?

The 7th is doing just what the 6thpct. Has been doing.........changing the stats to show little or no rise in crime. Someone gets shot almost every night in this County and the information is buried on page 38 in Newsday, if it is reported at all. This County has a huge gang problem. They are not going to stay in their own neighborhoods. People better wake up and be aware of their surroundings.
