Tips from your Police Department

Home Safety

Safety experts agree that the best way to deal with crime in the home is to take every step possible to prevent it from happening to you. Every person should know – at the very least – basic yet important crime prevention tips that will keep you and your family more safe and secure. 
The Atherton Police Department has on staff trained “CPTED” personnel – “Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design” who can conduct a home inspection and give you tips for securing your home, valuables, and even how to directly connect your alarm system to us at no charge. 
If you would like a home inspection completed – please contact CSO Erica Johnson to schedule an appointment via email – or via telephone at 650-752-0549.

Planning a prolonged vacation or absence?
