Crime data (burglaries only) in Moira Philbrook’s general neighborhood for the past month.

MANCHESTER, NH – Moira Philbrook has heard through the grapevine that her East Side neighborhood has been targeted by burglars. She thought that, beyond the grapevine, it would be important for someone to share that information publicly, to make sure everyone is paying attention.

“Word on the street is that there have been upwards of 20 break-ins in our neighborhood in the past month, let’s say between Bridge and Webster, up to Belmont. I support the police scanner being scrambled, but I think people need to be aware of this so that they are alert and vigilant,” wrote Philbrook.
I took her request to heart and asked Manchester Police Public Information Officer, Lt. Brian O’Keefe, about it. He said, according to the police department’s statistician, the city averages 20-30 burglaries a month.
He wasn’t surprised at the word on the street in Philbrook’s neighborhood.

“The area specified did get hit over the last month, so the numbers are not surprising. As far as ‘warning’ the public or making them aware, every day people should be vigilant. ‘See something, say something’ is not just a catchphrase. We really want people to call when they see someone suspicious,” O’Keefe said.

 Manchester Police Chief Nick Willard was scheduled to release the department’s Q2 crime reports today during a noon meeting at police headquarters. We’ll bring you city-wide crime updates as soon as they’re available. You can see charts for Manchester Police Q1 “Part 1” crime data and comparisons with 2016 and 2015 at the end of this post.
