Just a Reminder

  • Always be on the lookout for any suspicious activity in your neighborhood - strange vehicles or people on foot at odd hours. 
  • Always lock your car - even in your driveway. 
  • Never leave valuables in plain sight - take them inside or at least place them in the trunk. 
  • Never leave your car running or with the keys in the ignition. 
  • To report suspicious activity dial the non-emergency number, 336-727-2112, or send an email. To report criminal activity occurring right now, call 911.

Safety Tips for Traveling

  • Don't forget to have your mail and newspaper picked up or stopped.
  • Get a timer for your lights and a radio.
  • Let your neighbors know you will be gone so they can look after your home and ask them to park in your driveway from time to time.
  • Let the Sheriff's Department know that you will be gone and request a security check.
