Anti-Crime Advice from Central Precinct officers at Public Meeting 9/20/06

  • 99% of car break-ins correlate with owners leaving valuables within view, even coins.
  • Homeowners should call 911 even when they just have a bad feeling, e.g., seeing a flashlight on at 1:30 a.m. or a suspicious solicitor or contractor or other persons in the street.
  • Homeowners write down the serial numbers of all their valuables because most arrests and recoveries of stolen property result from police looking at pawn store lists.
  • If you come home to a ransacked house, it is better to stay outside and call 911 on a cellphone (in case someone is still inside)
