Summer is approaching and with the better weather comes an increase in traffic, population, and unfortunately criminal activity also tends to increase.
To help reduce the crime rate in our community, below are some simple ways that all of us can participate:
- Lock your cars. Car prowlers are looking for opportunity so an unlocked vehicle is an easy target.
- Avoid leaving valuables in your cars (electronic devices, computers etc.).
- No one knows how to recognize abnormal activity better than the residents who live in a neighborhood. If you see vehicles, people etc., that are not normal for your neighborhood, contact Security.
- If you are going on vacation, let someone know. Sudden Valley does offer a “Home Security Program” available through Member Services. However, whether you choose to use this program or not, let someone you know you are gone so you can be assured someone you trust is paying attention and can contact you if they see something concerning.

Being proactive in home and neighborhood security is a the best way to deter suspicious activity — if you see something, say something!
