      What to do for Suspicious Incidents

      Suspicious incidents occur when someone observes activity that is odd for what is normal of the neighborhood or the surrounding circumstances. It is when attention is drawn to a person's conduct that is unusual, different, odd, dangerous, appears wrongful, or just-not-right under the circumstances. Suspicious activity is an occurrence that is out of place and should not be happening in the neighborhood under normal circumstances. If you observe any suspicious activity, you should IMMEDIATELY CALL THE POLICE anytime you are unsure if someone or something appears not to fit in your neighborhood. Use your gut feeling, if it doesn’t seem right, just call and the Police will attempt to find out what is happening.


      What is Neighborhood Watch?

      A watchful neighborhood is key to preventing crime because many criminals are discouraged if they might be observed. Information that you or your neighbors give the police about suspicious activities can result in quicker and more successful solutions.
