Fri, Jul 22nd, 2016

The Police Department reminds residents to please lock your vehicles at all times.

More than 90 percent of vehicle break-ins in the Township occur in cars and other vehicles that were left unlocked. Simply locking your vehicle, even when it is in front of your house, will help prevent break-ins.

- Do not leave windows and sunroofs open
- Do not leave keys in vehicles
- Do not leave garage door openers in clear view
- Do not move valuables to your trunk when others are watching
