Holiday Season Crime Prevention Tips: Lock Your Doors, Set Alarms And Don't Leave Valuables In Open View.

The Holiday Season typically sees an increase in residential burglary activity. Residents are urged to be more vigilant of your homes as well as looking out for your neighbors. Please remember to lock your doors and windows when you go out. If you have an alarm system, remember to set that on your departure as well.

Also, this time of year New Castle Police receive reports from residents that envelopes and packages which had been placed in mailboxes or affixed to trash containers are taken by unknown persons. The gifts do not reach the intended recipients. If you intend to make a gift to a person who provides a service to you, Police suggest making arrangements to present the gift in person, even if several neighbors designate one person from their street to make personal contact on behalf of themselves and their neighbors.

Police also want to remind residents to remember to lock your cars at night and remove any valuables which may present a temptation to break into your car.

Anyone who observes suspicious activity, persons or vehicles should contact Police right away at 914-238-4422.
