(London Daily Mail) Frustrated by an increase in petty crime, residents of an Oregon neighborhood have decided to arm themselves instead of calling the police.

Residents of a Jennings Lodge neighborhood in Clackamas county, Ore., have put up fliers advertising their new policy, calling themselves the ‘Glock Block’, according to KOIN News.

‘This is a Glock Block,’ the fliers read. ‘We don’t call 911.’

Along with some of her neighbors, Coy Toloman has put up the fliers and gotten a concealed carry permit with the hopes of deterring criminals.

While the increase in neighborhood crime is mostly petty, with incidents of vandalism and stolen lawn ornaments, Toloman has had enough.
