Some Things to Watch For

Posted on February 19th, 2015 by Alert Protective

Neighborhood Safety

Not every stranger in your neighborhood is going to be a criminal. There are many legitimate tradespeople, repair and service technicians who do have legitimate business around our neighborhoods. Just remember, criminals take advantage of this by often assuming the guise of a legitimate business representative.

Always ask for and carefully check the identification of all solicitors, meter readers, and repairmen prior to allowing them into your home. If there is ever any doubt, lock your door and call the business or utility for verification.

Be suspicious of anyone going door-to-door in your neighborhood. Watch them carefully and if you notice that they try the door to see if it is locked, look into windows, or go into alleyways or backyards, report it to the police immediately.

Be suspicious of apparent business transactions conducted from a vehicle. Be suspicious of persons being forced into a vehicle. Be suspicious of any abandoned vehicle that appears in your neighborhood. And, be suspicious if you see a flashlight beam inside a neighbor’s home, especially if they are away.

Many of these situations could have innocent explanations. But any law enforcement officer will tell you he or she would rather investigate crime-prone situations that prove harmless than be called to one when it’s too late. Your call could save a life, prevent an injury, or stop a criminal act.
