Burglars and other criminals often strike neighborhoods where residents do not watch out for each other and do not call the police when they observe suspicious activity.

It is very important that you be alert to the following activities, they may be happening in your area:

  • Strangers going door-to-door, (front or back, night or day), or loitering around the houses where residents may not be home.
  • Strangers entering a neighbor’s house when no one is home.
  • Strangers at your door who claim to be lost or looking for someone else.
  • Strangers running, possibly carrying something of value, not wrapped or packaged.
  • Strange vehicles waiting or driving in the area, parked in neighbor’s driveway, or loading property.
  • Vehicles driving without lights, or parked and occupied at unusual hours.
  • Unusual noises such as screaming, gunshots, dogs barking continuously, glass breaking, etc.
