    The number of break-ins in Roswell is completely out control. I had a break-in 09/02/11. The police officer came and took a report, did not check anything, as a matter of fact it was not even reported to the daily news. he asked me what did I want to do? I’m like you are the police officer, what do you do when you have a break-in. he also asked if I needed a report for the rent-to-own company. I do not rent to own, I own everything in my house. This has got to be the sorriest police department in America. I moved here from Dallas 4 years ago, I had a break-in a while back (in Dallas), the police took fingerprints, looked for footprints and spoke to my neighbors. None of that was done here. This completely unacceptable. Does anyone even care, this place is too complacent and will settle for anything.
