News from the Captain

Lock your car doors. Thieves routinely commute to a residential area and begin pulling on handles to vehicle doors. An unlocked vehicle door is a surefire way to lose important or precious items, including your vehicle.

Additionally, don't give a car thief an opportunity to steal your vehicle by leaving it running unattended. Leaving your vehicle running unattended is also against the law.

Thieves generally do not break windows unless they see something expensive left unattended in your vehicle.

Also, residents should stay alert to certain crime trends that have occurred throughout the County in recent years: deception burglaries and home improvement scams. Be mindful of certain ruses.

  • 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.

Report suspicious persons or conditions in your neighborhood by dialing 911. Together, we can make your neighborhood a safer place.
