Personal Safety Tips from the Sarasota Police

The Sarasota Police Department has created a brief Common Sense Brochure filled with helpful hints on how to minimize the chance of opportunistic crime.

They caution property owners that it is never a good idea to confront a burglar – stuff is not worth sacrificing your safety. Residents should report suspicious activity by calling 911, and homeowners are encouraged to prepare and retain an inventory of household belongings.
