If you see a burglar in action, get a good description of the person, their car and tag number. Write it down and call the police immediately!
If you are Burglarized:
- Do not enter your house if you return home and find signs that a burglary is taking place or has taken place. Go to a safe place immediately, such as a neighbor's home and call the police.
- If you enter into your home and find evidence of a burglary, call the police immediately. Do not touch anything or move anything around. Give the police a chance to gather evidence that may have been left.
- Try to determine what has been taken and prepare a list of stolen items (with serial numbers if possible) to assist police in their investigation.
If you would like a police officer to conduct a Security Survey and make suggestions on ways to improve the physical security of your residence please contact your community coordinator.
