Neigborhood Crime Watch

 
Donnie Munden of the Hancock County Sherriff’s Department spoke to Kiwanis about the neighborhood crime watch program.  Munden stressed that getting to know your neighbors was one of the most important parts of any successful program.  
Specific tips to harden your home so that it is less inviting to thieves and intruders include:
·         Cycle lights on timers so that they come on and off at different times
·         Stop mail and paper deliveries or arrange for someone to collect them
·         If you have an alarm system have signs at the door or the mail box indicating that.
The Sherriff’s office will organize a crime watch meeting for a neighborhood when requested.
