THESE ARE TIPS FROM THE COOK COUNTY SHERIFF’S POLICE DEPARTMENT
“Ruse Burglaries” are when a person tries to convince victims they are their (new) neighbors,
utility people, tree trimmers etc, to distract or gain entry, while another follows behind-once the
victim is out of the way, to commit a burglary. Ruse burglars look for people not home and easy
targets: One person home, elderly, trusting people, women, new/concerned home owners, etc, and easy ways in. They don’t want confrontation. [Sometimes they even wear orange or yellow construction vests].
Trust your instincts – call 911
⦁ Lock doors—including storm doors, if going outside, lock doors/garage. Tell your kids NOT to open the doors.
⦁ There is no reason for any utility people to be in your home— unless they have an appointment.
⦁ You DO NOT need to be polite. DO NOT be afraid to be blunt.
⦁ IF you let someone in the house, close and lock the door behind them, so their partner can’t enter. Don’t let anyone in your house that you don’t know.
⦁ Talk to the person through the door, tell them to leave items outside / you’re not interested,
or you’ll call the agency involved.
⦁ Leave lights on or noise on in the house. Use timers. Vary your home leaving routines.
⦁ Install good storm doors with locks — even simple locks — that open out. Dogs barking are good.
⦁ Security & video surveillance signs are good to have on your door. Watch for cars that pass often (even 15 min apart or so) also, bring mail and newspapers in.
⦁ keep an eye out for neighbors out of town. Thieves like the unoccupied homes.
⦁ They target homes with undisturbed snow on the driveways. It’s a good idea
for a neighbor to drive their car onto those driveways to make some tire tracks. This would make it appear that someone is home.
Unincorporated Northfield Township-Several thefts from vehicles have been reported in recent weeks in unincorporated areas according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Police.
In the majority of incidents, vehicles were left unlocked overnight, often with the keys inside. Incidents have been reported on Linden Lane, Hickory Court and Pensive Lane.
Residents are reminded that once inside a vehicle, offenders have access to garage door openers, allowing access to the garage and potentially the house-
SHERIFF’S POLICE ASK THAT YOU FOLLOW THESE VEHICLE SAFETY TIPS
-THEFTS FROM VEHICLES ARE CRIMES OF OPPORTUNITY-REMEMBER TO-
ROLL UP YOUR WINDOWS HIDE YOUR VALUABLES
LOCK YOUR VEHICLE / TAKE YOUR KEYS
MAKE SAFETY A HABIT
