FCSO would like to encourage you to make a security habit with the #9PMRoutine - lock your car, roll up windows, remove and secure any valuables or firearms, lock doors and windows to your home, and turn on any exterior lights. Don't be a victim, do the #9PMRoutine! 🕘🔒🚙🔑🏠

Happy #Halloweekend! 🧛‍♂️🎃🕸️🕷️ With many Trick-or-Treat activities going on this weekend in anticipation of next week's ~spooky~ day, FCSO would like to remind you of a few safety tips to make Halloween activities a real treat for the entire family. 🕷️ Carrying flashlights will help children see better and be seen more clearly. 🕷️ Walk on designated sidewalks, not in the street. 🕷️ Stop only at houses or apartment buildings that are well lit and never enter a stranger's home. 🕷️ Make sure that an adult or older responsible youth will be supervising the outing for children under the age of 12. 🕷️ When it comes to any candy or treats....when in doubt, throw it out! 🕷️ Motorists should watch for children darting out between parked cars and walking on roadways, medians, and curbs. Motorists should also enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully. 🕷️ Be SAFE and have FUN! For more tips, see our full list below ⬇️

Please see the press release below regarding a motor vehicle theft that occurred last week at the Sheetz on Buckeystown Pike.

Always remember to keep your vehicle keys on you, and your vehicle locked upon parking and exiting.
