Police Reminder
The Police Department would like to remind residents that there are several ways they can help assist police in preventing crimes by reporting suspicious activities. This includes persons, vehicles, things that are “out of place” or “out of the norm”.

Below are some obvious things to watch for and report:
  • • A stranger entering your neighbor’s house when they are away…may be a burglar.
  • • Someone screaming might indicate a robbery or a sexual assault or other crime may be occurring.
  • • Offers of the sale of merchandise at ridiculously low prices are often too good to be true and might actually be stolen property.
  • • Anyone peering into parked cars may be looking to steal the vehicle or the valuables inside.
  • • Sounds of breaking glass or a loud noise might indicate an accident, burglary or vandalism.
  • • Persons going door-to-door in your neighborhood, watch for a while. Do they turn the doorknob to see if it’s locked? Are they looking in the windows? Do they go around to the side or rear yard to see if someone is home? If so these individuals might be burglars.
  • • Persons waiting in front of a house or business if the owner is absent or the business is closed. This person may be a lookout for a burglary in progress.
  • • Parked occupied vehicles containing one or more persons are especially suspicious if observed at an unusual hour. The subjects could be possible lookouts for a burglary in progress or other illegal activity (such as drugs and/or underage drinking).
  • • An abandoned vehicle parked on your block may be a stolen vehicle.

Remember:
  • • Don’t assume that someone else has already called.
  • • Don’t worry about “bothering” us; that’s why we’re here.
  • • Don’t be embarrassed if your suspicions prove unfounded

THINK INSTEAD WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF YOU DON’T ACT!

Remember, “IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.”;

Help us in the fight against crime, by not becoming a victim.
