Keep your summer safe: lock your doors and be aware21/10/2022
Keep your summer safe: lock your doors and be aware Summer in Eden Prairie offers many opportunities: afternoons at the beach, picnics in the park, walking the city’s many trails, and backyard barbecuing.To get more news about lock manufacturer, you can visit securamsys.com official website.
It also offers thieves many opportunities that can ruin the fun. For example, a burglar hit the southwest corner of Eden Prairie, walking into several homes unabated and stealing cash, credit cards, and more. The day before, catalytic converters were stolen from two vehicles on Golden Triangle Drive. EPLN asked Sgt. Lonnie Soppeland of the Eden Prairie Police Department how city residents can reduce their risk of becoming victims of opportunistic criminals.
Lock your doors Several recent residential burglaries involved a thief entering unlocked doors, most sliding glass doors on decks and patios.
“The No. 1 thing is just keeping your doors locked and your overhead garage door closed,” Soppeland said. “And if you have to park the vehicle outside, you want to ensure that your vehicle is locked and that there are no valuables in sight.”He also recommends removing garage door openers from vehicles parked outdoors. Thieves break windows and then have access to a garage. Parking in your garage is the best option.
Beware: factory-installed programmable garage door openers may operate without a key fob, according to two Eden Prairie garage door opener companies. Neither are sure if all garage door openers or vehicle makes and models operate the same way.
Soppeland urged residents to call 911 any time they observe suspicious activity, including looking under a parked vehicle – often a prelude to catalytic converter theft.“We would rather respond and have it be nothing than not respond and have something happen in the area,” he said.
Home security systems? Soppeland called security systems “helpful” and recommended displaying the system’s sign predominantly.“Make sure (the system is) properly installed and has an audible horn or bell and notifies the alarm company,” he said.
Soppeland also recommends notifying your neighbors that you have an alarm and how they can help you respond if it were to go off.
Once they go on, it heightens your awareness of what’s happening on your property,” he said.He recommended installing lights in locations that make them difficult to tamper with. Soppeland said that Amazon’s Ring cameras and others that turn on and record individuals coming to a door or are on the back side of a home can be useful to police.
Ring video from several homes was instrumental in confirming the identity of a suspect in the Settler’s Ridge string of burglaries on May 31. That suspect has been arrested and charged with five counts of first-degree burglary.
Eden Prairie has chosen not to join about 400 police departments around the country and about 15 in Minnesota – including Plymouth, Edina and Shakopee – that have established neighborhood partnerships that allow police to request access to Ring footage.
