Central Illinois went from feeling like mid-March to mid-August almost overnight and that quick transition has local authorities reminding residents of a few things to remember.


While the hot and humid temperatures of the midweek are expected to be short-lived, Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers on the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday implored residents to keep a lookout for their neighbors, especially elderly neighbors.



Yearly, Chief Lowers indicates the seasonal transition brings more folks out for walks and gatherings. He indicates this often brings with it an increase in crime and the Chief points out this year in particular, there is an increase in thefts locally.



The Chief offers his annual reminders for residents to remove all valuables from vehicles and lock those cars up. He reminds they encounter very few forced entries into motor vehicles.



With May Days just a week away, Chief Lowers reminds residents to be aware of closures that happen on the square and encourages attendees to keep those dogs at home. He becomes concerned with the responses of dogs in big crowds and the safety of others.
