Even though you read that crime is down nationally, it’s hard to ignore local news of home burglaries and thefts from cars. Making your castle safe starts with being sure that your doors and windows are locked when they should be, and if you have a security system remembering to set it at night and whenever you’re not at home.
Our neighborhood is pretty vigilant about suspicious activities, and KPD has repeatedly reassured us that they want to know just as soon as you have good reason to be concerned. They really don’t mind sending a car over just to check things out. Then post your concern on our wonderful Facebook page.
Finally, please, please, please lock your car every time you park it, and don’t leave valuables or tempting items in sight.
