The “Dear PoP” letters are getting good this one had a picture attached.

Hey PoP,

So, what would you do if you found the back security gate of an abandoned house next to you wide open? What would you do if it were right next door?


Dear Worrier,

If I found the back security gate to an abandoned house wide open I would call 311. But before I called 311 I’d think to myself, wait a second, do I call 311 or do I call 911? I’d wonder does 311 even exist anymore? Then I’d mutter some curses and question why the hell they changed the 311 – 911 system. And ultimately I’d call 911. I’d also talk to some of my neighbors and ask if they knew what was going on. If I was feeling particularly bold I might close the gate a bit so it didn’t look so obviously wide open. I’d be sure to check back on it the next day to make sure it was secured. If it was still not secured the next day after calling 911 I’d follow up with a call to my Ward community outreach person and let them know the problem. Hopefully one of those two steps would resolve the problem. Let us know what happens.


Anyone have other ideas?
