The holidays are a popular time for thieves to target homes around town. To keep your holidays safe, please follow these tips:

  • Do not leave boxes on your porch. Consider having the packages delivered to your workplace or set the delivery options to require a signature.
  • Do not put intact boxes out for trash pickup or recycling. Break down boxes and put in your trashcan or recycling. This keeps thieves from identifying new big-ticket items that you’ve purchased and target your home for later.
  • If you will be out of town for the holidays, request an extra patrol with the police department. Download request form.
  • Do not leave valuables in your car and keep your car and home locked.
