Residents should also consider keeping valuables locked up or out of sight. It is a good idea to write down your hand tools and lawn equipment information, including make, model and serial numbers. In case that it is ever stolen, there is a way to track it and possibly recover it.

To get a neighborhood crime watch started in your neighborhood, or for additional information, contact Officer Sisk at (972) 780-5027 or email at dsisk@ci.duncanville.tx.us.

Help the Duncanville Police Department help you take a bite out of crime by doing your part by closing and locking your garage doors.
