Sometimes on SeeClickFix, citizens come together and find creative solutions to community problems. Last week, residents in the neighborhood of East Rock in New Haven took to SeeClickFix to discuss a rash of package theft in the area. Seems that when packages were being delivered to people's homes and subsequently left on the porch, thieves were snatching them up before they could get home from work.
These citizens banded together and not only proposed some awesome solutions--including putting out decoy boxes to deter thieves--but also got some great news coverage on WFSB and NBC Connecticut highlighting their coolness.
