Crime Prevention

In an emergency, every second counts.

Call 9-1-1 in an emergency where you need fire, police or ambulance services.

Making some easy and cost-effective changes on your property can increase safety and deter criminals. Take the following simple actions to prevent crime on your property:

  • lock your doors and windows, even when you are home
  • install exterior motion lights around doors and windows
  • get a safety deposit box for storage of important or irreplaceable documents
  • consider installing a home and/or auto alarm system
  • do not leave keys, garage door openers, change or other valuables in your vehicle
  • close the gate to your home when you leave your property, as well as when you are at home
  • if you are away from home in the winter, have someone drive in and out of your driveway in the snow so tracks are visible
  • if you are away from home in the spring or summer, have someone maintain your lawn
  • do not post on social media sites that you are away from home
