You can help prevent the significant increase of copper wire thefts occurring in the City’s street lighting system. This has caused a number of streetlights not to function for a period of time.
Call 9-1-1 immediately if you observe a wire theft in progress or see any suspicious activity around city streetlights.
WHAT TO NOTE IF YOU SEE SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY:
IS THERE A YELLOW STREET LIGHTING MAINTENANCE VEHICLE ON THE STREET?
The vehicle has a city seal, the words “Street Lighting” on the driver and passenger doors and the word “Exempt” on its license plate.
IS THERE STREET LIGHTING STAFF WORKING ON A STREETLIGHT?
They can be identified by their orange vest, hard hat and city identification. The Bureau of Street Lighting has contractors who install new lighting. The names of these companies would be identified on their vehicles.
