County Sheriff's Office
Get to know your neighbors.
Become familiar with their routines. You need partners in watching
the activities in your neighborhood.
Be suspicious! Report unusual
or suspicious behavior to the sheriff or police. Write down
descriptions of the persons, vehicles and license numbers.
Exchange names, home and work
telephone numbers with your neighbors.
Keep a trusted neighbor
informed if your house is to be vacant for extended periods of time.
Look after your neighbor's
house while he or she is away. Ask your neighbor to look after your
house too. This could include collecting newspapers, mail and other
deliveries that would indicate at a glance that no one is home.
Establish and attend regular
neighborhood meetings with your local crime prevention officer. Learn
about local crime trends and what you can do about them.
Keep a list of emergency
telephone numbers next to your telephone.
