As we head into August and summer vacation plans we remind residents that you can register for a free vacation safety check to request extra patrols while you are away. Take basic steps to protect your home. Be social media savvy. Posting requests for services with specific dates detailed (dog walkers, for example) give away your schedule and make you a target for bad actors. We all want to share our pictures, but wait until you are home to post. Arrange for packages to be delayed, delivered elsewhere or collected by a neighbor and do the same for mail. See the ‘Public Safety’ section below for the links to request the security check and a ‘Take the Pledge’ lawn sign. Together, we can make a difference.
National Night Out will be held this Tuesday, August 2 from 6-9pm in the Cambridge Square Parking lot. Join us for an evening of police and first responder demonstrations, games and fun as we promote our strong police-community partnership. Details below.
Please see below for more on these and other important town notices:
