Canfield Police Department
Our Mission is...
Duty, Honor, Community, Energy, Confidence, Perseverence
In the last six months….
Did you leave the front door or garage unlocked while you made a quick trip to the grocery store?
Was it too much trouble to check the meter reader’s identification before letting him in?
Did you forget to tell a neighbor that you were going away for the weekend?
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Good locks, simple precautions, neighborly alertness, and common sense can help prevent most property crimes. Get together with your neighbors to keep an eye on each other’s homes. Half of all home burglaries occur the day when alert neighbors could spot the thieves and call the police. Many neighborhoods have started youth patrols, or senior citizen “Window Watches”, or trained people like newspaper carriers and utility employees to watch out for suspicious activity on their routes.
LOCKS, DOORS, AND WINDOWS
Burglars hope to avoid confrontations, so make your home look occupied!
