Safety Tips

Here are some ways you can improve your neighborhood safety

  1. Tell your neighbors to observe what is going on around them.
  2. Be alert, especially at night. Watch out for suspicious activity.
  3. If you see suspicious behavior, observe what is going on. Record date and time, license plates, what people are wearing, what they look like they are doing and then call 553-0123.
  4. Keep the sidewalks clear! The police can't notice suspicious activity if the sidewalks are blocked.

If you see an incident, or are a victim yourself, REPORT IT TO THE POLICE. (If you don't report it, it didn't happen!) Call these numbers:

  • Emergency (a serious crime is happening now): 911
  • Non-emergency dispatch (you want a squad car to come) 553-0123
  • Call Park Station you want to tell the police what you know about crime in the neighborhood
