This Week at Connected Communities - August 16, 2009

Do you know these men? This week the Chevy Chase bank at 2315 Randolph Road in Glenmont was robbed. Exceptionally clear surveillance photos of the suspects may lead to their identification.

Weekly Crime Summaries for all six police districts, Rockville City, and Takoma Park, were published August 10th through August 13th. Summaries are published in Local Crime Reports.

There have been three pedestrian fatalities in the county in the first half of August - more than any other month this year. If you’re on foot, watch out for cars! If you are driving, give pedestrians the right-of-way. See the 2009 Pedestrian Incident Map for details on pedestrian incidents this year.

Police remind commuters “Don’t Forget” to keep any items left in vehicles out of sight. Theft from vehicles continues to be the most common crime in Montgomery County, and yet it is a crime that many times can be prevented.

The Montgomery County Department of Recreation Fall Guide is now available online. The Recreation Guide contains a complete listing of all of the great fall session programs.

The 2009 Junior Achievement Essay Competition Begins August 17. High school students throughout the Region are invited to write a 1,500 word essay on the topic, "How can Greater Washington companies responsibly and effectively deal with the economic challenges facing the United States?"
