Security and Crime Prevention

If you are traveling:

–      Get an automatic timer for your lights.

–       Ask a neighbor to watch your home and occasionally park out front or in your driveway.

–       Have your mail and newspaper delivery temporarily suspended, or ask a neighbor to collect them on a daily basis.

If you are shopping:

–       Always be aware of your surroundings.

–       Park in well-lit spaces and remember where you parked.

–       Lock all doors and close all windows.

–       Make sure that no valuables or parcels are in plain sight.

–       Be extra careful with purses and wallets.

–       Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.

–       Teach children to go to a store clerk or uniformed security guard if they become separated from you.
