Safety Tips from the NCPD


breakin-hi-resAs residents prepare for the holidays and vacations, the Nassau County Police Department has a few checklist items you should address to make your home and yourself safer. 

• Burglars look for dark homes. Consider keeping lights on when you’re not home and investing in motion-detection lights on the corners of your home.

• Keep your bushes short, so you can see through your windows if anyone is approaching your property.

• Lock doors, windows and rear gates when leaving the house.

• Make alarm stickers visible on doors and windows and keep your car in the driveway if possible.

• Park in well-lit areas. Lock your vehicle and do not leave it running.

• Hide packages and shopping bags in the trunk and do not leave your GPS visible in the vehicle.

• Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
