Tip of the Week: Preventing Thefts In Your Area
Preventing thefts in your area is as easy as locking doors, keeping high value items out of view, and checking your mail daily. If you must leave high value items in your vehicle, secure them in the trunk where they are out of view, and lock your vehicle. If you own bicycles, always lock them with a good quality lock whenever left unattended. If available, store your bicycles in your garage and lock your doors. If you do not have a garage, try to store your bicycles somewhere on your property out of view and lock them to a secure and permanent fixture. Check your mail DAILY, and try to use drop-off mailboxes for outgoing mail.
Thieves are not like fishermen. They do not keep their favorite fishing holes a secret. Word gets out quickly when an area is an easy target, which attracts more crime. Taking time to secure your vehicle and property will discourage thieves and help keep our community safe.
Take care, and be safe.
