Help us Help You - Don't be a willing victim - Learn the 9pm Routine 

The 9 P.M. Routine is a nightly reminder to our community to remove valuables from their vehicles, lock their vehicle doors, lock the doors to their residences, turn on exterior lights, and activate all alarms and security systems. Criminals look for easy targets and often walk through neighborhoods, trying vehicle door handles and hoping to find an unlocked vehicle. You can make it more difficult for them by following the 9 P.M. Routine!
