BURGLARY PREVENTION TIPS
A burglary happens when a person knowingly enters unlawfully or knowingly remains unlawfully in a building or inhabitable structure for the purpose of committing a crime therein.
HOLIDAY CRIME PREVENTION
Random crime is a reality in any large city neighborhood, especially during the holiday season. Criminals especially prey on shoppers, who are often distracted and carrying valuable gifts or purses.
BEWARE of PHONE SCAMMERS
Scammers are in full force, especially during holiday seasons. Don’t be a victim! Know what to expect.
