Crime Prevention Tips

Important crime prevention tips.

Upstanding citizens cannot remove a criminal’s desire or ability to commit a crime, but they can help prevent crime by removing the opportunity. Here’s how:

  • Always lock your vehicle - even if it’s parked in your driveway.
  • Close your garage door.
  • Leave valuables at home.
  • Never leave valuables in a vehicle or even locked in a trunk as criminals may be watching.
  • When in doubt, call the Police. They would rather have a false alarm then have anyone become a victim because they didn’t feel comfortable calling 911.

Business Owners:

  • Leave cash register draws empty & open overnight so criminals looking in can see there is no money to steal.
  • Keep your safe & merchandise away from view of those looking in overnight.
  • Change your access codes & passwords frequently - especially if you’ve disclosed them to anyone else.
  • Use unmarked bags for bank drops & do them at different times of day, different days of the week. Criminals will observe your habits & can strike if they see a pattern.
  • Great customer service helps deter crime. No one wants to steal with people watching.
