Atherton Police Department News & Information
The purpose of this burglary activity alert is to provide you, our resident partners, with information to assist you in helping reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of a burglary. One of the best things you can do to prevent a burglary is to make your house look like someone is home when you are away from your home. There are several additional steps you can take to help make your residence a harder target for burglars which include:
? Securing your valuables and do not keep them in your master bedroom.
? If you use a safe, do not keep it in your master bedroom and ensure it is hidden and bolted to the floor and/or wall.
? Utilize a security system and consider having the alarm directly connected to the Atherton Police Dispatch Center to reduce the police response time.
? When away from your home keep lights on inside and outside.
