To ensure your safety this holiday season, please consider the following safety tips.
Let a trustworthy neighbor know if you're planning to go out of town for the holidays so that they can keep an eye on your home. Don't hide a key outside the house! You can also request to be added to our vacation house check list by calling our police dispatch at 385-2900. This way our deputies can provide extra patrols by your home and can be on the look out for any strange activity while you are away. Stop your mail and newspaper delivery. If it piles up, it's a sure sign you're not home. Park in well-lit and high activity areas close to store entrances during your last-minute holiday shopping. Keep all windows closed and doors locked. Do not leave valuables visible in your vehicle! If you need to return to your car while shopping, place your bags in the trunk and move your car to another safe location. Arm your security system to protect your home. While it may seem obvious, your mind is distracted when you're rushing out the door. Don't forget this simple step to ensure your home stays protected. We hope you have a wonderful time celebrating with your friends, family and neighbors.
