Recently there have been reports of break-insto homes in the Carmel Mountain Ranch community. Should you notice suspicious activity, please call the police immediately.
Everyone wants a safe place to call home. Taking a few simple steps can go a long way in reducing theft, vandalism and other felonies and misdemeanors.
Know Your Neighbors, not just the neighbors on your street, but also the neighbors in the larger Carmel Mountain Ranch community.
Leave The Light On. A good way to help deter break-ins into your home is to make sure your front porch light stays on all night, even when you are out of town. Not only does leaving the light on signal that someone is home, it also makes it harder for vandals to hide among the shadows.
Lock Up. It is advisable to keep doors and garages locked at all times. It is also a good idea to keep your windows closed and locked when possible, especially if they’re on the ground floor.
Put On Your Walking Shoes. Taking a stroll around the community is not just good exercise. You can casually patrol the community for anything suspicious or unusual.
Clean It Up. Picking up litter and keeping your front yards clean and orderly not only improves the appearance of the community, but also sends the message that our residents are diligent about keeping the neighborhood a respectable place to live. This can help discourage troublemakers from hanging around our community and encourage responsible and involved people to move to the association.
See Something, Say Something. If you notice a crime or a suspicious activity, regardless of how small the incident may seem, notify the police immediately. Of course, only call 911 if it is an emergency; otherwise, contact the police on their non-emergency line at 1- 619-531-2000
We all have a responsibility to our community to help keep it safe, and incorporating even a few of these tips can go a long way. Do your part to make our community a place you’re happy to call home.
