SAFETY TIP - SECURITY TIP

 

Always be aware of your surrounding, don’t get distracted when driving or when traveling about.  Safety is everyone’s responsibility. 

How do you keep your property safe from theft?  Lock your doors and valuables, to include bicycles and mopeds, should your bicycle be stolen, bicycles should be registered to assist with recovery.  Many bikes presently are not registered.   

 

As always “See something, say something”

 

Live Wise & Live Safe Hawaii

 As we continue to take steps towards safety remember that while walking around your neighborhood always be alert to strangers and “out of place” individuals and activities, report all criminal activities to the police (911).  Safety is a concern for everyone, crime prevention can be accomplished by all when we take the time to be the “eyes and ears” of your own neighborhood.

 

Keeping up with the activities and trends within your neighborhood or security blocks teaches us to be aware of the problems before they start.  We encourage you to join a Neighborhood Watch Group or Community Policing Program in your neighborhood.  Remember also that when driving, drive defensively, and be mindful of pedestrians.  Make eye contact with those in the roadway, or driver as you cross, safety is a four way street, stop, look, listen, and move.  Use your senses and “common sense” both home and away, think safety! If you know anyone who is interested inbeing a part of this informational E-Tree Project please have them email me at lcadoy@honolulu.gov requesting to be added to our list of participants.  Being connected is the best form of preparedness. – Malama Pono
