ID the Burglar Village Challenge
The ID the Burglar Village Challenge is a fun contest designed to promote neighborhood cooperation and crime prevention awareness, and to test a person’s skill and accuracy in identifying a suspect. A group from each village will be drawn from among the registered parties to participate in the challenge. A “burglar”, accompanied by a “good guy”, will be escorted by a deputy from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office to the chosen group in each village. The neighborhood must work as a team to help identify the burglar.
