Theft from Motor Vehicles, garage burglary and residential burglary
We are seeing an increase of reports of all three of these types of crimes, which are totally preventable;
Garage burglaries/Residential burglaries – close your garage door at night or when you leave, even for a “few minutes”
. If you see your neighbors garage
door open at night, be a good neighbor and let them know.
If your garage is attached, lock the door that leads to the interior of your home.
If you’re working in the yard, lock the doors to your vehicles and the door that leads into the house. Keep a house key on you or hide one out of sight. It takes a few seconds for a burglar to rummage through your cars or steal property from your garage
Open House/Graduation Season
When hosting an event in your home make sure to clearly mark (by shutting doors, making an announcement, putting up baby gates, etc) where people are welcome to go. Put containers of change, purses, prescription meds, small electronics, jewelry boxes, safes, and other small items out-of-site.
Be courteous of your neighbors (noise, parking) and be aware of minors consuming alcohol. If you are the party host, you need to be responsible and control who is drinking at your party.
