Dear residents,
As we enter a new year, please keep these 10 crime prevention tips in mind:
  1. Always make it look like someone is home; use exterior lights at night
  2. Make sure your home alarm is working and use it
  3. Have a generic phone message that does not include your name
  4. Lock all jewelry in a secure and hidden safe
  5. Keep a list of all serial numbers of your electronics & pictures of jewelry & other valuables
  6. Keep all entry/exit doors locked
  7. Never let an unscheduled stranger in your home
  8. If a stranger is at your door, make sure it's not a distraction for another person entering another way
  9. Never leave anything of value in your vehicle; if you must, lock it in the trunk
  10. Keep your keys in your hand when walking to your vehicle; do not unlock it until you are at it; lock doors immediately once inside

National Stalking Awareness Month
Stalking. Know it. Name it. Stop it.
During National Stalking Awareness Month, the JCPD suggests that you educate yourself, family and friends about stalking.
Stalking is a pattern of unwanted contact that causes victims to fear for their safety or the safety of family members. It can include implied or explicit threats; harassment; or nonconsensual communication through phone calls, text messages, or emails. The perpetrator is usually someone the victim knows.
Stalking behaviors may appear innocuous to outside observers, but victims often endure intense physical and emotional distress that affects every aspect of their lives. Many feel forced to move, or change jobs. Tragically, stalking tends to escalate over time, and it is sometimes followed by sexual assault or homicide.
