Suspicious persons description forms
Since we still have unwanted solicitors and other suspicious people, two forms are attached for your use. This info will be very valuable if you need to provide good info to theSheriff. Photo's are always good to have IF they can be obtained safely.
Photos can be taken through the window glass.
Remember, you do not have to open the door to a stranger, but always let the stranger know you are home. This behavior is not rude but important for your safety.

Wasp Spray instead of Pepper Spray
A receptionist in a local church in a high risk area who was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead. The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was interesting and might be of use...

Remember the benefits of an active Neighborhood Watch Program-
Neighborhood policing by you and your neighbors, together with the Sheriff patrol, creates a greater sense of security, well-being, and reduction of the fear of crime. “Look out for each other”.
Reduce the risk of being a crime victim by taking preventative measures that substantially decrease the likelihood of becoming a crime victim.
The Neighborhood Watch programs trains you how to observe and report suspicious activities. Hold a meeting on your block to talk to your neighbors.
Knowing your neighbors is an important feature and benefit of this program. Being aware of the goings-on in your neighborhood is not invading anyone’s privacy or snooping. It’s guarding against trouble or any situation which could be dangerous or criminal in nature.
Keeping your neighbors informed by email or phone or letter of criminal activity information helps everyone be better prepared to spot criminal activity in their neighborhood.
