Neighborhood Safety Reminder

Every so often we need a reminder that as members of the community everyone plays a huge role in creating a safe environment by communicating what you see and hear in your respective neighborhood. We are asking that residents take a proactive role and report any suspicious persons or vehicles.

Secure your vehicles and home at night - make it part of your evening routine to check that all doors and window are locked before you retire for the evening. Stay vigilant in your efforts to maintain the security of your homes by locking all windows and doors, work together with your neighbors to identify any suspicious activity, and if you see something, say something.

Diligent security efforts helps thwart access to your personal belongings and helps keeps our community a safe environment.

Contact the St. Mary’s Sheriff’s Department for any emergency.
