BURGLARY INFORMATION and SAFETY TIPS

BURGLARY INFORMATION AND SAFETY TIPS

The Saddle Brook Police Department is currently investigating several residential burglaries that have occurred the past couple weeks. Burglars have been entering homes through rear windows and doors while the homes are unoccupied. In several instances bedrooms have been searched and electronics in plain view have been taken.

This department is working with surrounding local and county agencies. Other towns in our area are also experiencing similar incidents.

Residents may find further information regarding these incidents on our Saddle Brook Police Department Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SaddleBrookPD.
“Like” our page, additional police information will be posted there.

We encourage all residents to continue to be vigilant to secure and protect your homes at all times and have a watchful eye on not only your own homes and properties but your neighbors as well. Any suspicious persons, vehicles and/or activity in or around your homes and streets should be reported to police immediately at 201-843-7000.

The following are safety tips to help prevent a burglary incident:

• Make sure all doors and windows are secure, especially in back; use window stops;

• Clear windows and doors of any bushes, trees or shrubs so that you, your neighbors — and, if necessary, police — can see them;

• Use deadbolts -- but with screws are at least a couple of inches long for additional strength;

• Motion detector lighting; not too close to the ground that someone could unscrew the bulb;

• Don't leave ladders or other types of boosters or tools outside;

• Keep lights on. Put them, televisions and radios on timers.
