Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

RACINE COUNTY – After seeing an uptick in thefts, the Racine County Sheriff’s Office recommends that residents use the #9PMRoutine.

“Please consider doing a #9PMRoutine which entails locking all vehicles and doors, turning on exterior lights and security systems, and removing valuables from your vehicle and yard,” said Sheriff Christopher Schmaling in a news release. “It is also important to report all suspicious activity in your neighborhood to law enforcement immediately.” 

Area law enforcement agencies have seen increased vehicle thefts and the theft of valuable items from unlocked vehicles. The Racine County Sheriff’s Office is pursuing these investigations in cooperation with surrounding agencies.
