Crime Prevention/Emergency Preparedness:
Sunday November 4th marks “Fall Back,” the return to Standard Time. In preparation for the time change, make sure exterior lights are working properly. Exterior lighting should evenly cover the property, eliminating possible hiding places. Check for burned out blubs. Test motion sensors and adjust sensor sensitivity. Reset exterior and interior lights that are on timers to reflect new sunrise and sunset times. The time change is also a great time to test and change batteries in smoke and CO2 alarms. For personal assistance evaluating lighting or other security measures, contact the Crime Prevention Unit at (619) 667-7545 to schedule a free home security inspection from the Police Department.
