How Do I...
Support Operations Division
Keep your eyes and ears open. Being alert to possible threat is the best way to keep safe.
Keep your doors and windows locked and do not open them to strangers.
Do not allow your children to answer the door without your knowledge.
Watch for anyone who may have followed you home.
Keep your front entrance well lit and visible from inside your house.
At Check Cashing Stores
Be aware of who is around you so you know if you are being followed after cashing a check.
Do not count out large quantities of cash in open view.
Park in areas that are well lit.
Avoid routine, such as cashing a check at the same time and location each week.
Avoid wearing expensive jewelry when obtaining cash. Robbers look for people who appear to have lots of cash.
When making purchases, do not advertise that you have a large amount of cash.
Keep cash in small amounts in different pockets.
Keep your doors locked, windows rolled up, and your car in gear.
If your car is approached while you are stopped, try to safely drive away.
Be aware whether you are being followed.
If you are being followed, drive to a well-lit public area and ask for help.
What to Do If You Are Being Robbed
Stay calm. You will remember more about the suspect. Most suspects do not harm their victims.
Do not resist the robber. Cooperate with the robber, but do not volunteer to do anything other than what is asked of you.
Try to remember as much about the suspect as possible, including a vehicle description, license plate and direction of travel.
Call 911 as soon as possible (from the scene if practical) and stay on the phone until an officer arrives to assist you.
Complete a report with the responding officer.
