Sounds like North Canton is headed SOUTH. Maybe the Police force should be amped up to get the City back.
Morgan Day (Editor) June 29, 2012 at 01:32 PM
Hey Raymond! I'm curious why you say that? Have you been noticing more crime in your North Canton neighborhood recently?
Raymond Reno June 29, 2012 at 01:42 PM
As a resident of the SW side for over 30 years - yes - though we recently moved out of the city in 2010. Maybe the crimes are being published more, but the vandalization and break-ins seem to be on the increase. Sure, a bad economy can bring desperate times to many people, but it's hard to imagine a city as fine as North Canton succumbing to this. On more than one occasion, we said "Can you believe what's happening to the old neighborhood?" It's sad that this type of conversation should ever happen.

Maybe there is a perception of more crime in North Canton now that The Patch is publishing the police blotter. Before The Patch and editor Morgan Day came to town we were blissfully unaware of crime in our city because The Repository for some reason never published the crime reports for North Canton. Now that Morgan is on the job The Repository has now sporadically published some of the crime reports for North Canton. On the other hand we now have graffitti vandals in North Canton and just last night a young man was arrested across the street from me; for what I don't yet know.
Morgan Day (Editor) June 29, 2012 at 01:47 PM
Hmm ... It could be that the crimes are being published more. Because there's not a lot of "big" crimes that happen in the city, I try to post nearly everything — breaking and enterings, burglaries, car break-ins, notable vandalism, etc., to give our readers a sense of what's happening around them. Thanks so much for the insight! I try to check in with the police each year to specifically talk about whether crime is increasing in certain neighborhoods, so your comments are definitely appreciated.
Raymond Reno June 29, 2012 at 01:50 PM
This is true, but certainly not to say we (or I) am not grateful for the coverage or the job that The Patch is doing. It's a great informative site for the city. Keep up the good work.
Ann Marie June 29, 2012 at 05:13 PM
Yes The Patch is doing a great job, but what about people, especially some older people that do not use or have access to the computer. They are not aware of what is going on in the city. I really do not understand why these crime reports are not listed in The Repository. I think there are more people that read The Repository than read The Patch. When I tell people what I have read on The Patch they do not know what I am talking about. And yes I do see our neighborhood going nothing but downhill. North Canton is not what it used to be.
Ashley Villers June 29, 2012 at 05:31 PM
When these break-ins happen is it people who are not locking doors of cars and houses? Very rarely do I see damages, which if windows are being broken would that be in the report? I'm just curious because I know of some NC residents who don't lock doors which is ridiculous to me.
Chuck Osborne June 29, 2012 at 05:44 PM
I will agree with Mr. Palosi regarding his remarks on the lack of crime reporting by the Repository. I have noticed for many years how I would never see any crime reports for North Canton and yet crime while crime in other communities was more openly reported. I think it is very sad that we no longer have an independent press in this county or throughout the country for that matter serving as the eyes and ears for the public. Thank you Patch for your honest reporting, without a bias or an agenda, on all that matters to the citizens of North Canton.
Morgan Day (Editor) June 29, 2012 at 06:13 PM
You know, a lot of times the police reports don't specifically say whether the door was locked or unlocked. I've definitely seen a few reports of people stealing things from unlocked cars, though.
Ken Palosi June 29, 2012 at 06:32 PM
A lot of the break-in happen when someone leaves a door open while working in the yard or even taking a short walk around the block. Anymore I lock the front door and close my garage doors while mowing the lawn or working somewhere in the yard, especially in the back yard where I can't keep an eye on the house.
Fred Benson June 30, 2012 at 02:43 AM
Morgan, This is why I asked about reporting the number of calls,etc. for the police and fire depts. It would give us a better understanding of out towns saftey forces and what is going on.
