What is suspicious?

Anything that seems even slightly “out of place” or is occurring at an unusual time of day or night could be criminal activity. The following are some obvious things to watch for:

A stranger entering your neighbor’s house when it is unoccupied;

A scream heard anywhere might mean robbery or assault;

Offers of merchandise at ridiculously low prices may mean stolen property;

Anyone removing accessories, license plates, or gas from a vehicle should be reported;

Anyone peering into parked vehicles may be looking for a vehicle to steal or for valuables left in the vehicle;

Persons entering or leaving a place of business after hours;

A sound of breaking glass or loud explosive noises could mean an accident, burglary or vandalism;

Persons loitering around schools, parks and secluded areas could be sex offenders;
Persons loitering in the neighborhood who do not live there; and

Anyone forcing entry to, or tampering with a residence, business, or vehicle should be reported.
