Recently, there have been a couple of trends that you should be aware of:
1. This month there were a few situations where residents left doors or windows unsecured and had items taken over night or while they were elsewhere in the house or yard. This is just a reminder- no matter what you are doing, please make sure that your home is sufficiently secured before you leave the room. I know that in this weather, it is tempting to open screen doors or windows. Please be aware when you do so and secure them when you leave the area.
2. In several situations, we have a person or a couple of persons knocking on the front door prior to going around to force a rear door. If someone knocks on your door please respond so that they know someone is home. In these situations, the persons have not wanted to interact with residents so they fled.
If you do see anything or anyone who seems out of place, please do not hesitate to call 911 and report it. We appreciate all of the information you may provide.
