Hello,

Helpful Tips when you are at home:

Never attach your name, address or other identifying markers on your key ring.

If you advertise something for sale, DO NOT include your address.

If you meet someone to do a sales transaction, do it in a Public Place, not at your home.

Hello,

Electronic devices, namely cell phones, are often the object of desire by thieves.  You can lessen your chances of being victimized by practicing the following:

  • Refrain from using your cell phone in public, such as walking down the street or on public transportation.
  • Do not leave your cell phone out in the open, such as on the table top next to you.
  • Never leave valuables, especially cell phones, in plain view in your vehicle….even for a second!
  • Keep your electronics concealed by keeping them in your pocket or purse.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Share the attached flyer with friends and family.

 

Thank You,
