Crime prevention tip
Many property crimes are crimes of opportunity.  You can help reduce your chances of becoming the victim of a burglary or theft by anticipating potential risks and taking steps to address them.  Although it is sometimes difficult, it helps to look at your home from the perspective of a criminal so you can see possible security and safety issues that need to be addressed.  If you would like further information about making your home more secure or you would like a home security survey, contact Staff Sgt. Steven McCoy at Building 15 or by phone at 567-5830.
