SAFETY INFORMATION

HALLOWEEN SAFETY

Review this safety information, especially if you won't be accompanying your children as they Trick or Treat.

SUMMER SAFETY

As you're making your plans, review our checklist to lower the chances of coming back from vacation to realize you've been the victim of a crime. 

SCAM ALERT

Scammers never stop trying to rip people off. They're constantly coming up with new tactics to trick people out of thousands of dollars,.

ASSAULT

Report assault when it happens, even if you do not believe it to be "serious."

RESIDENTIAL BURGLARY

In almost half of all residential burglaries, thieves simply breeze in through unlocked doors or unlocked windows.

 

When you arrive home, if something looks questionable, like a slit screen, a broken window or open door - do not go in. Call the police from a cell phone or a neighbor's house.

STREET ROBBERY 

When walking to your car at night, have your keys in your hand and be ready to open the door.

Try to avoid walking alone on the street after 9 p.m. If you must walk alone at night, use well-lit roads, with as much car traffic as possible, and walk near the curb.

THEFT FROM VEHICLES

The best and only way to prevent thefts from motor vehicles is never to leave valuables in your car unattended - particularly electronic goods such as cellular phones and laptop computers. 

AUTO THEFT

Door locks and ignition keys are called "first layer" anti-theft devices. Of course, every vehicle has them, but they sometimes offer no deterrent to a determined thief.

COMMERCIAL BURGLARY

Light all entrances, including alleys, with vandal-proof fixtures. Leave lights on inside the establishment overnight and on weekends.

 

COMMERCIAL ROBBERY

Keep cash to a minimum with frequent, irregular deposits or a "drop safe".

 

Use visible stickers or signs to advertise the cash control policy.

SEXUAL ASSAULT

Be aware of the surroundings when walking down the street. Walk briskly and confidently.

 

At night, try to avoid walking alone, particularly after 9 p.m. Stick to main streets with as much car and foot traffic as possible.

 

Avoid areas with excessive trees and bushes, dark streets, alleys, and other "shortcuts."
