With the recent rise in residential burglaries in our area, it’s important to keep your home safe.
Since the beginning of August there have been 15 reported residential burglaries or attempted burglaries within the city’s central and southeast sides.
All entries have been through unlocked doors, making homes an easy target for intruders.
“This goes hand in hand with our ‘Lock it or Lose it’ campaign. Lock your houses, leave your outdoor lights on that’s a really good deterrent in and of itself,” said Chief Information Officer with the Naperville Police Department, Jason Arres.
Arres also suggests when you’re out and about in your neighborhood and see something suspicious; do not hesitate to call the police.
“If it’s an emergency obviously 9-1-1 otherwise you can use the non-emergency number especially if it’s a suspicious vehicles where you don’t necessarily think there is a crime in progress but something just doesn’t seem right, call the non-emergency number,” Arres added.
