Crime Prevention 
 

Crime prevention is everyone's responsibility. 

For example, our statistics demonstrate more than 40% of residential burglaries occur through unlocked doors and windows. Each year, vehicles are stolen because people leave the keys in the car while it is warming up in their driveway or while the driver goes into the store for coffee. And, with too much frequency, items such as tools, purses, cell phones, laptops and the like are often stolen from vehicles because they are left in plain sight whether in the driveway at home or in a shopping center.

Simple preventative steps, such as locking the doors and windows of your home or never leaving valuables in your vehicles will reduce the likelihood of becoming a property crime victim.

The Salem Police Department Crime Prevention Unit is here to help educate you about the personal actions you can take to reduce crime where it counts - right on your very own block.

Programs such as Neighborhood Watch or National Night Out, are just a couple of examples that promote communication between neighbors and well as between neighbors and police. Officers will teach you how to recognize and report suspicious activity that may be able prevent crime before it happens. 

For further information about partnering with the police to prevent crime in your neighborhood, call (503) 588-6175.
