Crime prevention urged by police
There were two more burglary attempts over this last weekend, in all cases they tried to open or unlocked doors and windows. It is extremely important to make sure your doors and windows are secure. If you are going away for a weekend or vacation, please notify the police department. Call 856-662-0507 and the police will take your emergency contact information; they will also keep an extra check in the area while you are gone.
Over the past week police patrols have noticed more homes with their exterior lights on at night. This is an excellent theft deterrent as burglars do not want the light. They want the area they are in to be dark. They also do not want to take a lot of time or make any noise. By locking doors and windows you create time and if they try to break in it creates noise, therefore, we hope that more residents will leave their outside lights on.
