City of Novi - COP 20 CommunicationOfficer Rachel Meier is assigned as liaison to the local Novi homeowner associations. Periodically, Officer Meier sends communications to the associations' boards regarding events and activities in the area. Here's some recent advice from her latest communication: "We have had some recent daytime Home Invasions on the west side of the city, in the Beck and Wixom Rd areas. Remember that if you are home during the day and someone knocks, at the very least answer them through the door so they know someone is home. Keep an eye out for any unusual vehicles and people in the area as well. With the holiday season approaching, remember to lock vehicles and not leave anything valuable in the vehicle"
