What should I do if I notice someone suspicious in the neighborhood?

Suspicious Activity In The Neighborhood

Let other people in your neighborhood know whenever you see a stranger acting suspicious, and ask them to do the same. If there is someone you do not recognize hanging around a house in the area or talking to local children, communicating with your neighbors may prevent a crime.

By informing each other of things that seem out of the ordinary you can help each other to protect the community. Being aware of what goes on around you makes it easier to keep the safety of you and your family a priority. If neighbors are also concerned for the welfare of one another your home security is stronger.

Here are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Keep in regular contact with neighbors, and not just the ones next door
  • Ask them to check in on your children if you are not home and offer to do the same for them.
  • Share any neighborhood concerns you have with them so you can come up with ways to create a safe community for your families.
