Safety Alert

The 14th Police District has notified us of several recent burglaries in East Mt. Airy, in the Germantown Ave./Chew Ave area, from the 6500 - 6800 blocks. Please remember to lock your doors & windows. If you have exterior lighting, use it, especially near rear doors & windows. And do not leave electronics or other valuables in your cars, visible to passers-by.

As always, we urge you to keep your eyes & ears open. Report any suspicious activities to 911 immediately. Concerned & observant neighbors are key to helping stop property crimes.

If it's within your means, alarm systems are recommended, whether through a company that provides monitoring services or using a wireless system you can install yourself (available at hardware stores & "big box" store like Lowes & Home Depot).
