News from the Captain

As temperatures rise, so do crimes of opportunity. Follow these seasonal crime prevention tips to protect yourself from becoming a victim.

  • Drivers are more likely to roll down their windows and leave their vehicles unlocked.
    • Lock your vehicle and make sure to secure belongings in the trunk where they can’t be seen.
    • Never leave garage openers or keys in your vehicle as they can be stolen and used to burglarize your home.   
  • Deception burglaries and home improvement scams increase, and the elderly are often the targets.
    • Suspects commonly work in pairs and approach homeowners at their residence with the intent of gaining entry into the home.
    • One suspect will distract the homeowner while a second suspect enters the home to search for valuables and cash.
    • They often pose as an employee of a local utility company, home improvement contractor, or government official. 
    • Ask for proper ID and credentials when someone comes to your door unsolicited.  
  • Dirt bikes, ATVs and bicycles are also targeted. Make sure they are stored in a secure location (shed, garage, etc.) that is well illuminated at night.


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.
