VACATION SAFETY TIPS

(07/11/2010)

HOLIDAY SAFETY TIPS

It is that time of year when many of us take vacation, and when burglars look for easy pickings. Take the time to follow a few common sense tips and you may help limit the chances of you having an unpleasant surprise when you return from a relaxing and wonderful vacation.

  • Remember to let your neighbors know when you will leave and when you will return, and ask them to look out for your place.
  • Give a trusted neighbor a way to contact you at your vacation location – just in case.
  • Remember to hold your mail at the post office.
  • Inform anyone who regularly delivers to your home to hold any such deliveries until after your return date, or ask a willing neighbor to take the deliveries for you.
  • Ask a trusted neighbor to drop in every now and again, to check on the home, water the plants, close the curtains at night and open them in the morning  etc.
  • Turn off all of your electronic appliances and unplug them until your return.

Return the favor for your neighbors and you’re well on your way to building your own little neighborhood watch program.

HELP US SET UP A NEIGHBORHOOD, BUILDING & BUSINESS WATCH ON YOUR BLOCK

(06202010)

NEIGHBORHOOD, BUILDING & BUSINESS WATCH

One of the most effective ways to combat crime, and get to know your neighbors better at the same time, is to establish a Neighborhood or Building or Business watch on your block.  CP-USA would like to help develop a watch program on every block in the South Beach / Mission Bay / Rincon Hill area with the help and support of SF Safety Awareness For Everyone and the Patrol Special Police and San Francisco Police Department.

Neighborhood watches are a group of neighbors who meet monthly to discuss concerns on their block, and who look out for each other and call police when they observe suspicious people or circumstances.  Building watch works in a similar way, where neighbors within an entire building, or on each floor of a building develop a watch program – whether building security is in place or not.  Business watch works much the same way within retail block which are primarily occupied by businesses.

Talk with your neighbors and get your neighborhood watch rolling. It can make a significant difference on your block and in your community.  Contact us for more information or contact SF-SAFE at www.sfsafe.org .

If you hear or know of anything crime or safety related happening within our neighborhood which you believe others should be aware of, please let us know by sending an e-mail to KenCraig@CommunityPatrolUSA.org . We will be sure to pass on any information received to the most appropriate referral organization.

NOTE however, you should ALWAYS contact SFPD FIRST to report criminal acts or crimes in progress.

SFPD Southern Station.  Hosts a monthly meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 6pm to 7:30pm at 510 7th Street (old SF Police Officers Association building). Get involved, become a part of the solution, and attend as many of these Community Meetings as you can.

San Francisco Patrol Special Police. Patrol Special Police are the only private neighborhood policing service screened by background checks conducted by the San Francisco Police Department, annually trained at the San Francisco Police Academy, and regulated by the Police Commission. Patrol Special Police provide the only private safety service that is legally permitted to patrol the City’s streets, and is on police radio frequencies. Contact Officer Scott Hart  415.543.8807 for more information.

Community Patrol USA promotes and provides information and assistance in the deployment of 5 major community safety and security programs:

  1. COMMUNITY SAFETY COLLABORATIVE (CSC) PROGRAM
  2. NEIGHBORHOOD , BUILDING, BUISINESS WATCH (NBBW) PROGRAM
  3. CITIZENS ON PATROL SERVICE (COPS) PROGRAM

South Beach / Rincon Hill / Mission Bay C.O.P.S. – The Citizens On Patrol Service (C.O.P.S.) initiative is a non-profit group of unpaid volunteers who live, work, or play in the community and donate their time to walk, bicycle or drive in regular citizen safety patrols as an extra set of “eyes and ears” for law enforcement. C.O.P.S. volunteers are community minded citizens of all ages and from all walks of life who want to make a difference. SB C.O.P.S. works in collaboration and cooperation with the San Francisco Police Department, the San Francisco Patrol Special Police, the San Francisco Fire Department and all city and state governmental agencies. If you’re interested in donating some time to the neighborhood C.O.P.S. program and helping the patrol the neighborhood, contact info@CommunityPatrolUSA.org and mention SB/RH/MB C.O.P.S. in the title.
