Burglaries and other crime can be stopped if you and your neighbors get involved.
Form a Neighborhood Watch Group (brochure available) and keep a list of Neighborhood Watch members on your refrigerator or near the main telephone in your house.
When you notice suspicious activity, call the police at 911. Then, call other Neighborhood Watch members to notify them of the activity so they can secure their homes, turn on lights and be alert for further activity.
Be prepared to do your civic duty in reporting crime, being a witness for the police and testifying in court if called upon to do so.
Develop good habits in personal and home safety so that you re not an easy target for a criminal.
