Light your lights for safety
One of the simplest ways to make your home and property safer is to turn on your outdoor lights at night. The Hoffman Estates Police Department joins police departments across the country in recommending that residents have a #9PMRoutine. By setting an alarm on your phone, watch or other device to remind you to do these actions every night at 9 p.m., you can take an active role in keeping our community safe!
- Turn on exterior lights.
- Remove valuables from your vehicle.
- Ensure that vehicle doors and trunks are locked.
- Check that gates to your property and doors to your home are also locked.
