Letter: Take precautions to keep your home safe

From: Sheryl Nulph

Historic Downtown Neighborhood Watch


Columbus, please stay vigilant. Who says criminals don’t act in cold weather? Homes in the historic downtown district have been victims of robberies within the past week. Everyone needs to remember to stay on their guard and not take your safety or the security of your home for granted.

Please remember to:

  • Lock your doors, even when you are home.
  • Keep security lights on all night.
  • Report any theft to the police, no matter how insignificant you feel the theft has been.
  • Don’t assume. Report any suspicious activity or people to the police.
  • Don’t keep valuables in your car overnight, especially if you have to park outside.
  • Let neighbors you trust know when you will be away from your home.

Be secure. Be smart. Be safe.
