Geneva police offer tips to prevent neighborhood crime

Sep 01, 2016 09:05AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

The Geneva Police Department reminds residents to take preventative measures to protect their valuables after an increase in thefts and burglaries have been reported from unlocked cars and homes in August.

The incidents have occurred both during the day and evenings, and the locations are spread throughout the City. In an effort to make property less of a target, people should lock their vehicles and remove valuables such as computers, iPods, purses, keys, etc. at night. Residents should make sure their garage door is closed and check that access to their home’s doors and windows are secured. Outdoor lighting may act as a deterrent in some cases since many car burglaries occur under the cover of darkness.

The Police Department encourages residents to report all suspicious activity to authorities immediately by calling 911. The information provided may be the key to solving crime in their neighborhood. Please do not use the City’s online “Report A Concern” feature, which should only be utilized to inform police of non-emergency situations since the program is not monitored 24 hours a day.

The City of Geneva is a safe community where the Police Department strives to remain proactive in dealing with all criminal activity. Police want to thank residents who take these steps to support this mission.
