The Ripon Police Department is asking citizens to take the following actions to reduce crime in our city:

• Park your vehicle in your garage

• Remove all valuables from your vehicle (Note: Loose change, phone chargers, kids toys or an old jacket are all valuable to a drug addicted thief)

• Lock your vehicle

• Use your vehicle alarm

• Don’t try to hide valuables under the seat or cover them up. (Remove all valuables from the vehicle)

• Call the police if you see or hear anything suspicious. (We appreciate all calls & we respond to all calls!)

Please help us keep Ripon safe.
