The holiday of Halloween is tonight, Tuesday, and Crown Heights Shmira has provided safety tips:
Halloween is tonight and although it is a generally peaceful celebration, there are occasional incidents of which the public should be aware. The Crown Heights Shmira Patrol would like to inform you of several safety tips to help protect yourselves and your property against criminal acts of mischief.
• While walking around, remain alert to your surroundings. Pay attention to who is walking near you
• Walk in groups
• Walk in well lit areas
• Children should be escorted and not walk alone
• Keep house doors locked
• Do not open the door to strangers. Ask “who is there?” before opening the door. If it’s children asking for treats simply respond with, “I am sorry we don’t have any treats/candy.”
• Keep valuable property indoors and out of sight.
Shmira will have numerous volunteer members on patrol walking throughout the neighborhood Tuesday night.
For emergency assistance call 911 and Shmira at 718-221-0303.
