Tips to keep your home safe:

  • Avoid displaying packages where they can be seen from a window or doorway.
  • Leave lights on inside the residence when leaving home, even if for only a short time.
  • Arrange to have packages delivered to a neighbor if you're not home to receive them.
  • Packages left on doorsteps draw unwanted attention to your home and are easy pickings for thieves.
  • Holiday decorations shouldn’t obscure the view from your windows. Try to maintain a clear view of your property.
  • Always lock your doors and windows, even if you're only gone for a few minutes.
  • Often criminals will spot something you've discarded and can target you for their next burglary or theft. Compact or dispose of packaging discreetly.
  • When leaving town, have a trusted friend or neighbor take care of your home. Never cancel general deliveries such as mail, newspapers, and other services when leaving town or going on vacation.
  • Notify the Cranberry Township Police Department if you plan an extended absence. We can issue a vacation watch or directed patrol for your home. Call 724-776-5180, ext. 5.
  • Report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood by calling 911.
