PUBLIC SAFETY TIPS
From Weber County Sheriff Department
Following these safety tips may save your life or the life of someone you love!

1. Secure your homes, vehicles, and outbuildings (including trailers) at all times.
2. Remove valuable items from your vehicles to alleviate the motivation and
reduce the opportunity for vehicle burglaries.
3. Report any door-to-door salespeople who are operating without a valid city business license.
4. Keep horse tack items secured within your barns, tack sheds, and horse trailers.
5. Compile an inventory list of all valuable property; the list should include complete descriptions of each item, digital photographs, and serial numbers if applicable
6. Contractors are encouraged to take construction trailers home when no workers are on the job site and to secure all tools and equipment on a job site that cannot be removed when a job site is unoccupied.
7. When ordering checks, have them delivered to your financial institution rather than your home. Drop off outgoing mail at designated U.S. post office drop boxes instead of leaving it in our home mailbox. Retrieve your mail every day; if you’re going to be out of town, place a hold on your mail or ask a trusted neighbor or friend to pick up your mail for you.
8. Make sure your address is conspicuous on the exterior of your home so emergency personnel can easily identify it if responding to a call for
assistance.
9. Keep weeds and shrubbery trimmed; keep yard foliage at a minimum. Keep outside porch lights on at night to reduce the likelihood of crime in your neighborhood during nighttime hours.
10. Ensure your children obey curfew:
a. Under 16 years of age inside 10 PM through 5 AM
b. 16–17 years of age inside midnight through 5 AM.
Exceptions:
• juvenile is emancipated as an adult
• juvenile is accompanied by an adult
• juvenile is traveling directly to or from work, a school function, a church
activity, or medical appointment
• juvenile is on emergency errand at direction of parent
11. Get to know your neighbors; watch out for one another!

Working together, we can make our community a safe place to live, work, and play!
