Tips to prevent burglary, concert in the park, keeping cool this weekend.
Preventing Burglary
There has been a rise in burglaries in the Greater Cincinnati area over the past few years. Some are happening during what we'd consider an unconventional time of day between the hours of 8am and 2pm. A trend has also been noticed that some homes experience theft of loose cash, jewelry, and prescription meds. We can take precautions to prevent burglaries and other crimes to keep our neighborhoods safe.

Read a few tips below and please pass them along to your neighbors and loved ones.
