Burglary Prevention Tips from HPD

  1. Know who belongs in your neighborhood.
  2. Report suspicious persons immediately.
  3. Be alert in protecting not only your home but your neighbors as well.
  4. Don’t tell a stranger that your neighbor is not at home or volunteer any personal information about your neighbor.
  5. Never leave notes on your door that reveal that your home is not occupied.
  6. Join a neighborhood watch group.
  7. Help keep your neighborhood clean.
  8. Acknowledge all callers through locked doors.
  9. Keep doors, windows and garage doors closed and locked even when at home.
  10. Draw all curtains or shades at night to prevent viewing from the street.
  11. Never leave a house key in an obvious place such as a mailbox, under plants, or a doormat.

Citizens on Patrol
Since we are experiencing a rise in criminal activity we are in need of more neighbors actively patrolling our streets to help curb this trend. I urge everyone to contact me so that I can schedule a COP training class for you. Just a few minutes a week can really make a big difference in keeping Lazybrook safe. Patrolling is as easy as driving or riding a bike through the neighborhood with a cell phone and calling in any suspicious persons or activities. We will train you, the hours are flexible to fit any schedule, and you are reimbursed for the cost of gas. Please email lazybrook.security@gmail.com to let me know if you are interested.
