Tips/advice:

Residents are encouraged to set exterior and interior lights on timers with the decreasing amount of daylight to make the appearance of being home and making the neighborhood safer and better illuminated. Remember to contact this department for vacation watches with the holiday season approaching. With that being said, if you are expecting a delivery, request that the package be dropped off somewhere out of plane sight or have it delivered to a neighbor or your place of employment. Thieves target unattended packages on porches during the holiday season.
