1.)    Reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods (i.e. any individuals exhibiting behavior consistent with “casing” their neighborhood, aggressive solicitors, suspicious vehicles not known to the neighborhood, etc.).  When calling, the public is asked to articulate specific observations, which would substantiate their suspicions.

2.)    Securing their homes:  There are a variety of preventative measures community members can take to secure their homes and deter criminal activity.  Some of these techniques include installing burglar alarms, locking perimeter gates and access points, installing exterior motion lights and video surveillance systems.  Any residents interested in receiving a free home security inspection are asked to contact Community Service Officer Josh Cottrell at (650) 947-2647 or email
