Keep Your Vehicles and Homes Safe

The Police Department would like to remind residents that they should take pre-emptive measures to keep their vehicles safe including:

  • Whenever leaving your vehicle parked outside, make sure that you keep the vehicle locked.
  • Do not keep any valuable items in the vehicle (especially in plain sight to anyone who walks by the car).  These are just free things for a potential thief to steal.
  • Do not keep FOBs in the vehicle that will allow criminals to steal the vehicle.
  • Do not leave the vehicle running and unattended, even if it is just for a couple of minutes.
  • Leave porch lights and other exterior lights on to deter criminal activity.

If you see suspicious activity, please contact 9-1-1 immediately.  To learn more about these tips, please contact Randy Rathmell, Police Lieutenant, at (847) 673-2167.
