News from the Captain

Residents should stay alert to certain crime trends that have occurred throughout the County in recent years: deception burglaries and home improvement scams. Remember to be mindful of certain ruses, especially as the weather gets warmer.

  • Deception burglaries occur when suspects, generally working in pairs, approach homeowners at their residence with the intent of gaining entry under a seemingly benevolent role like posing as a legitimate worker from a local gas company, water department, cable company, or as a tree trimmer, paver, county inspector, or government official. One suspect will distract the homeowner while a second suspect will quietly enter the home and search for valuables and cash.
  • Home improvement scams often involve someone posing as a repair person who offers a bargain price on a home repair. These con artists like to intimidate their victims, and the work is shoddy and done with inferior materials.

Details on these and other crime prevention tips are available online.

Please do not hesitate to call us if you see someone suspicious in your community. Together, we can make your neighborhood a safer place.


Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct at Officers will then check on your location for any unusual activity while you are away.

If something suspicious does happen at your home, law enforcement will be able to quickly reach you or a local emergency contact from the information provided on the form.
