• As this case illustrates keep your patio doors locked at all times.
• To help prevent burglaries, keep your doors locked at all times. This will serve to protect you from unwanted intrusions whether you are home or not. It only takes a few seconds for someone to enter an unlocked apartment and steal your purse or other valuables. Keep your windows secured as well. If opened slightly for air, make sure the window is secured so as not to open further. This is especially true for ground floor apartments.
• Get to know the other residents in your apartment building. Neighborhood Crime Watch encourages this activity, which helps to reduce crime in that area.
• Do not invite strangers to your apartment right after you meet them. Do not let anyone into your apartment who you are not expecting or have not identified. If you live in a security building, verify who is at the door. Don’t just “buzz” them through into the building. You compromise everyone’s safety by not verifying identity.
• Report any suspicious or criminal behavior immediately to the Police Department. If you are reporting a crime in progress or other emergency, use 9-1-1. For all other activity or to make a report, call 223-1212.
