TIPS FOR TRAVELERS, 12-17-12
Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Take measures to protect your property while you are away, such as locking the doors and making arrangements for snow removal before leaving town. Also, leave some lights on and request that mail and newspaper delivery be suspended while you’re away so these items don’t pile up. In addition, possibly ask a trusted family member or friend to check on the house regularly. If something seems suspicious in your neighborhood or if you have specific questions about how to improve security please contact local authorities. For those who have questions and live in the unincorporated areas of Polk County, the non-emergency phone number for the Polk County Sheriff’s Office is 515-286-3306.
