Provost Marshalís Corner is a community policing initiative to keep you informed of monthly criminal and negligent activities affecting our community. To report a crime in progress, dial 911. Anyone with information regarding the crimes listed below, please contact Crime Stoppers at 396-EYES (3937).
Provost Marshal messaging:
Because of the recent spike of larcenies of government and private property, we highly encourage everyone to remain vigilant in and around the Fort Bragg Community by securing your personal and military property behind locked doors. Additionally, we recommend that you do not store your TA-50 and high valued items inside of your vehicles due to promoting criminal targeting. The vast number of these recently reported larcenies involve property that were left in parking areas in un-securable vehicles such as soft-top Jeeps and motorcycles. Please make yourselves and your property a harder target.
