Safety Tips


A couple of very simple, basic precautions will go a long way in helping the police and yourself protect your family and your property:

  • Keep valuables out of sight (PDAs, Laptops, CDs, briefcases, and fancy stereos).
  • Lock your car (in your garage if possible, and certainly in your driveway).
  • Close and lock your garage.
  • Investigate suspicious noises – or call the police – immediately.  Don’t wait until morning.
  • Leave your yard light on all night.
  • Report suspicious persons or cars to the police immediately.
  • Make sure all the outside lights to your home are in good working order and illuminated at night or use motion detector lights.
  • Lock all doors and windows.
  • Leave interior lights on when you’re gone.
  • Keep your vehicle locked at all times and valuables out of site or removed from vehicle.
  • Get an alarm for your home.
  • Have someone mow your grass, shovel your snow, pick up your mail to give the appearance someone is home.
  • Have someone you trust check on your property while you are gone.
  • Put your bicycles away at night and lock them up if you plan on leaving them unattended for any length of time.
