The Henderson Police Department wants to remind residents to secure their garages and utility buildings when left unattended.
The best deterrent to keep thieves from stealing your property is to properly secure these structures with adequate locking devices. Sheds and garages are often left open and unattended as we do yard work or other outdoor activities creating the opportunity for theft.
Take the time to reacquaint yourself with your old and new neighbors and use this as an opportunity to suggest a neighborhood watch. Let your neighbors and 911 know when a suspicious person has been spotted in your area. Neighbors working together for each other’s well-being is the foundation for a happy and safe community.
The goal is to create an environment that is uninviting to the criminal element.
