    “Thanks to help from the public…” etc. This tells you the cops try their best, but sometimes they DO need your help. “Help me, help YOU,” as Tom Cruise once said in the famous film. Auburn has recently been deluged by the homeless, by druggies, by thieves. Not all homeless are druggies and thieves, but they do often come in that combination, unfortunately. As a citizen of this city, it is your responsibility to report. Makes you and your family safer, and easier for the cops to clean up this town.
