Last Updated: 11/28/2016

General caution about mail:  We’re still seeing a lot of nighttime mailbox break-ins.  Please pick up your mail as soon as you can, and don’t let it sit in your mailbox overnight.  If you're going on vacation, have USPS hold your mail until you return.  The safest way to handle your outgoing mail is to hand it to your carrier or mail it at a post office.  If you see or hear anything suspicious around a community mailbox, call us right away.

*What’s a Honda Hunter Special?  Older sedans, especially 1990s to early 2000s Hondas, are the most commonly stolen vehicles in our area.  Other cars in this category include older Toyota Camrys, Acuras and Saturns.  Thieves like them because they’re easy to steal with shaved keys or other common car thief tricks.  If you own one of these older sedans, park it inside the garage if possible.  If you don’t have an enclosed garage, PLEASE get yourself a Club steering wheel lock or other visible auto theft deterrent.  They’re not expensive and are a great investment to protect your car.  Thieves looking for a quick and easy car to steal will give yours a pass.
