There have been several thefts in PKW recently. Most of theses have been thefts of plants and other decorations taken from the front porch or steps. With Christmas coming soon, there will likely be an increase in delivered package thefts.
I would urge residents to take the following precautions:
- Leave your front porch lights on at night.
- Don’t leave valuables unsecured.
- Require a signature for all deliveries.
- Consider having packages delivered to a secure location such as a UPS store.
- Keep an eye on strangers at your neighbors’ door.
- Report suspicious activity to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
If you see a crime occurring now (even if it’s a minor theft) call 911. For non-emergency police response, cal 503-629-0111.
