Tips
The West Norriton Police Department offers the following tips to hopefully lessen the probability of a resident becoming a victim of crime. This is not a complete list; however, it will assist in developing a personal safety plan:
  • Vary your daily routine
  • Leave a key to your residence with a trusted neighbor
  • Register your house alarm
  • Do not stop daily newspaper or mail delivery while on vacation - have a relative or neighbor pick it up
  • Solicitors are required to register with the township and display a township issued permit. If you are unsure if they are legitimate, ask to see their permit
  • The elderly are often victims of scam artists. If your neighbor is elderly, keep an eye on them
  • Report suspicious vehicles, circumstances and/or persons immediately
  • Do not leave valuables in your vehicle
  • Lock your vehicles at all times
  • Secure any firearms
  • Contact the police department when going away on vacation
  • Maintain landscaping so as not to obstruct windows and doors
  • Shred documents with personal information on them
  • Do not provide personal information over the phone unless you have initiated the call
  • Check your credit report at least one time per year
  • If you think you are being followed, call 911 and get to a public place
  • Be familiar with your surroundings
  • Develop an emergency action plan in case of an emergency
  • If you are the victim of a crime, report it to the police as soon as possible
