News from the Captain
As the holiday season approaches, many of us will be traveling to spend time with friends and family from near and far. While away, remember to protect your home with some basic crime prevention tips.
- Remove objects that might allow access to your home, such as ladders as they can be used to enter a window or scale a fence.
- Do not post travel plans on social media letting people know that your house may be unoccupied.
- Ask a neighbor, friend or relative to pick up your mail, newspapers and deliveries or simply have delivery stopped while you are away.
- Don't leave a key hidden outside. Burglars know all the best hiding places.
- Secure windows including those upstairs.
- Cut tree limbs away from second-story windows to reduce the chance of entry.
- Use timers to operate lights. It makes your home look occupied when you're not there.
- Ask a friend to move your car occasionally if it's parked in the driveway.
- Install a web-based home security system that allows you to check on your home while away, as well as arm and disarm your system from any laptop, cell phone, PDA or other web-enabled devices. Be sure to have a good firewall and protection system for your web-based system.
Stolen vehicles is a common crime trend, especially when drivers leave the keys in the ignition with the engine running to warm it up as the weather gets colder. Always lock your car and take the keys with you even if you need to briefly run in the store. Automatic car starters are popular, but leaving a vehicle alone with the engine running is also against the law and could leave you with a ticket.
Residents are encouraged to attend the White Marsh Police and Community Relations Council (PCRC) meetings held monthly. Information on their meetings, events and crime prevention are posted on their Facebook page.
Help protect your community from crime by reporting suspicious persons or activity to 911.
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.
