Vacation Checklist

  • Fight identity crime in your area.
  • Are your shrubs and bushes within four feet of sidewalks, driveways, doors or gates maintained at a height of no more than four feet?
  • Make sure your house number is easily visible from the road. Police, Fire, and EMS will have an easier time finding your residence should you have an emergency.
  • Make sure to store bicycles, ladders and lawn mowers inside a building or home.
  • Ask the Anderson Police Department to put your house on “Keep Check” while you are out of town on vacation.
  • If you exercise by running or walking in the City of Anderson, do you always work out with a partner?
  • Always park in a lighted parking lot when you are shopping or conducting business after dark.
  • Never leave keys locked inside your car whether they belong to vehicle or not. Criminals will break a window out just to get the keys thinking they belong to the vehicle and will then have access to your home or office while stealing your property or the vehicle.
