The hours of daylight are dwindling unfortunately and cooler weather will be here soon as well. Make use of timers on lights and other household appliances to give the appearance that your residence is occupied and/or that someone is home. As always, please LOCK your vehicles and homes. Request delivery services to require a signature for packages or to have them placed out of sight from the street. Please report anyone or anything suspicious to the Crafton Police Department immediately by calling 911. We are more than happy to respond to a call that turns out to be nothing then to respond later to a call where items are stolen or people are injured.
