PSA ON TIPS TO DETER BURGLARIES (2016/09/14)

Click to View Movie

    St. Landry Crime Stoppers mission is to help solve and prevent crimes and is achieved by providing everyday citizens with the tools they need to protect their neighborhoods, schools and families.  

    Burglaries and home invasions have continued to threaten the safety of our homes and of our neighborhoods in Acadiana. 

    Prevention is key, so consider the following to deter burglaries:   

·            Do not leave ATV’S, generators, or anything of value in plain sight on your property.  A chain can deter a thief but it can be cut and your property stolen.

·             Make a habit of using your alarm and locking windows and        doors.

·             Install a high definition home security camera system.       

·             Do not leave valuables in clear view when you park your vehicle and remember to always lock your doors.

·             Postpone your social media travel updates until you return.  Updating in real-time alerts others of an empty house. 

·             Keep valuable property locked inside your home, and in places burglars would not suspect valuable are hidden.

·             Write down your serial numbers and video all your property in case you are burglarized.  If you do not have the serial numbers for investigators it will be harder to recover your property.

   Use common sense!  If you see something - say something.  Keep an eye on your neighbor’s properties and report ANY suspicious activity to law enforcement.  Be Alert, Be Safe, and God Bless.  On behalf of Crime Stoppers and Deputy Alex Savoie, I am Major Eddie Thibodeaux.
