News from the Captain
As we approach warmer months and will be spending more time outdoors, it is important to take steps to keep you and your property safe. Please take a moment to practice the warm weather crime prevention tips listed below and posted online.
- Record the make, model number, and serial number of all of your lawn equipment and bicycles. Take pictures of the equipment and keep the information in a safe place.
- Keep your home and shed area properly lighted.
- Keep all doors and windows locked. Never leave your shed unsecure when you are not using it.
Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct's Community Outreach Team. 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.
