From the Chief of Police:
Now that the holidays are upon us I would like to remind everyone of some precautions that can be taken during this holiday season.
Don't leave valuables in your vehicle.
Make sure your car is locked.
When pulling into your yard or place of business survey the surroundings to be sure it is safe before exiting your vehicle.
Putting the empty boxes that your presents came in on the side of the road is not a smart idea. This gives a criminal a shopping list of what is probably in your residence.
If you are leaving town for the holidays the Richlands Police Department does resident checks if they are not busy on calls. All you have to do is come to the police department and fill out a request form.
If you see something that looks suspicious please call the police department.
Let us have a happy holiday season and the criminals an unhappy holiday season in jail.
