Crime Watch Tips

Tips for Discouraging Criminals
  • Do not leave valuables visible at night. The sight of a wallet, purse, or jewelry near a door or window can be irresistible to a thief. Note that cell phones are also attractive targets.
  • All entry doors to your home should be equipped with deadbolt locks, and if your door has a window in it, the lock should be keyed on both sides.
  • Equip your home with security lights.
  • Do not leave your doors unlocked, or your house unattended, even for a short time. The thieves we are encountering are opportunists who in at least one instance have victimized our neighbors in situations where the opportunity presented was quite brief, during the day.
  • Lock all ground floor level windows at night.
  • Keep a cell phone nearby to be certain you can contact law enforcement in the event of an emergency.
  • Be alert. If you see something suspicious, REPORT IT to police.
