Crime Does Not Occur at Night Only - Lock Up!

Many crimes are crimes of opportunity!  Simple tips to prevent becoming a victim.

  • Make sure your vehicle doors are locked at all times.  It only takes a second to pull items out of a car.
  • Make sure your garage door is closed when you are not outside.  Crime happens in the middle of the day and items easily can be removed from your residence.
  • Make sure your windows and doors are locked. If you plan on being out for just a few minutes use the safety locks on new windows - if your windows are older, close and lock them.
  • Entry doors open during the day provides wonderful sunlight, but, storm and screen doors should be kept locked to keep an unwanted visitor from wandering in.
