Among the top four crimes that rise during the summer months, burglaries made that list along with car break-ins, aggravated assault, and business robberies.

It may sound like a broken record, but Albany Police Chief Michael Persley said people must stop leaving purses, wallets and weapons in their cars.

As for burglaries and robberies, Persley said it's important for businesses and even homeowners to invest in surveillance systems.

Some officials also recommend letting a neighbor or family member get your mail when you're out of town so suspicious people don't have an idea that you're gone.
