See Something? Say Something!

This slogan has become so common place that many of us ignore it, but the most effective thing a resident can do to help prevent crime and assist police is to report suspicious and criminal activity to 9-1-1.

As soon as any crime is discovered or when any suspicious activity is observed (i.e. someone
testing car and home doors to see if they are unlocked) call 9-1-1 to immediately report it.

When you SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. Call 9-1-1 immediately for Police-Fire-EMS assistance. Help prevent crime by locking car and home doors, and concealing valuables from sight.
