An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

Summer is coming. That means many of you will be taking family vacations. The summer months are a long awaited time for most of us. Kids are out of school, and it is a perfect time to hit the road. Following are some safety tips that I would like you to think about from the Bartow Police Department this year.

First, let’s talk about your home. While you are away from your home this year, please make sure you have done some basic safety checks. Cancel your paper delivery, use lights on a timer if possible, and leave someone in charge of your house in case of an emergency. If you live in the City of Bartow, the police department offers house checks. Officers and volunteers, assigned to your area for patrol, will keep an extra eye on your house and might even prevent a theft or burglary.
