- Keep an eye out for your neighbors.
- Lock doors and windows, even if you will be away for only a few moments. It takes a thief just seconds to take what you worked many hours to earn.
- Alert police to suspicious activity. Do NOT place yourself in harm’s way by “investigating” on your own.
- Keep a porch light on at night.
- Use a timer system if you will be away from home for an extended period.
- When walking in both daytime and nighttime, wear bright clothing and reflectors to help drivers see you better.
INFORMATION FOR DOG OWNERS
Did you know that on warm days, if the pavement is too hot for you to touch, it is also too hot for your dog's paws? Please do the "touch test" before walking your dog, and keep your dog away from hot pavement. Your dog will be thankful!
Also, per county law, dogs must be kept on a leash whenever they are off your property. Please make sure to clean up after your dog if it relieves itself in your neighbors' yards or in any of the community's common areas. Thank you for helping make Arbor Landing a pleasant place to live!
