Crime Prevention Tips:
• Call 911 or the Duluth Township Police if you suspect something is just not right.
• If you see something, report it. • Lock doors and windows. • Record serial numbers on valuables. • Take pictures of jewelry, guns and electronics. • Let us know when you are away on vacation. • Do not leave large amounts of coin/cash hidden or in plain view.
Burglars may go up to a house and knock on the door. If nobody answers, they might break in. On some occasions, people were home and burglars used a random excuse such as “I’m here to look at that item you were selling on Craig’s list” or some other odd purpose for being on the doorstep. It’s not a bad idea to keep your door locked too.
Debit Card Fraud. Residents in the area have received fraudulent calls stating that there were problems with their debit card. These calls are an attempt at fraud. Do not give personal information or information about your account or card.
