Safety First – Summer Safety -- May 2019

Criminals don’t take a summer vacation.


Spring is in full swing and summer is right around the corner. Now is the time to start preparing for fun summer activities. The Roseville Police Department also encourages you to take a few minutes to consider your summer safety plan. Help keep crooks out of your house, your property secure, your kids safe online, and your vehicle from becoming a target.


By taking preventative measures now to safeguard your home and family, you can relax and have peace of mind all summer long. Here are some tips from the National Crime Prevention Council.


Home Safety Tips

  • Be aware of what’s happening in the neighborhood. Stay connected via Neighborhood Watch or a “Nextdoor” group.
  • Lock your doors, including the garage door. Unlocked doors are open invitations to intruders.
  • Ask a trusted family member, friend, or neighbor to keep a watchful eye on your home and pick-up any packages or mail; or have your mail held at the local post office until your return.
  • Put lights on timers to give the impression that someone is home.
  • Don’t post on social media that you are leaving town, and wait to post photos after you return from your trip.

Tips for Parents

·       During a family outing make a backup plan in case the group gets separated.  Consider having a scheduled meeting place and time. 

  • If your children will be home alone for a significant amount of time, have them check in with you if they plan to leave the house and when they arrive back home.
  • Monitor internet and social media activity to establish if your children are visiting appropriate sites and following guidelines.

Car Safety Tips

  • Always lock your doors and roll up your windows when you leave your car.
  • Do not leave valuables in the car. If you must leave prized possessions in your vehicle keep them out of sight or hidden in the trunk.


These prevention tips are simple steps to avoid summertime crime. If you would like more information, please visit Roseville.ca.us/police or NCPC.org
