Pesach Security Tips From Our Police Chief

Chief Lawson has just emailed TLS with the request to share this information with our readers:

With only two weeks left before Erev Pesach, we are swinging into high gear with our planning for the upcoming Yom Tov. With a substantial part of our community leaving town to be with family elsewhere, our residents are especially vulnerable to burglaries this time of year. Therefore, I am once again putting out suggestions for a happy and safe Pesach. As a public service, if you see fit, would you please share the following information with your readership. Wishing everyone a Chag Kosher Vā€™Semeach. Thank you, Chief Rob Lawson
Lakewood Police Department HOME SECURITY TIPS FOR PESACH. If you are leaving for the Yom Tov please be sure to: 1.Leave lights in your house on ā€“ preferably on a timer. Most burglars look for a darkened residence to enter since this tells them that everyone is asleep. 2. Lock all of your windows. Most burglars make entry through unlocked windows. 3. Lock all the doors to your house as well as your car door. If you have an alarm, activate it. 4. Do not leave any valuables in plain sight either in your vehicle or in your home. 5. Do not allow newspapers or mail to accumulate. Have a neighbor collect them for you. 6. Leave a contact number with a neighbor in case of an emergency. If you are staying home for the Yom Tov: Please insure that all your doors and windows are locked every night, especially if you have had anyone in the house such as a cleaning person or even a repairman. Leave some lights on all night. If you have an alarm, activate it. Please keep an eye on your neighborhood and report any suspicious activity to the Police Department 732-363-0200 as soon as possible.

Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy Yom Tov.

Rob Lawson, Chief of Police
