COMMERCIAL & RESIDENTIAL SECURITY SURVEYS
The Crime Prevention Unit will conduct an in-depth on-site examination of your home or business and its surrounding property. The survey is conducted to determine your security status; to identify deficiencies or security risks; to define the protection needed; and to make recommendations to reduce the opportunity for a criminal attack to be successful. To schedule a survey of your property contact Corporal Joseph McHugh or Officer Stephen Cittadini at (856)267-1111.
Operation I.D. is a property-marking program that has been successful in reducing or eliminating burglary and theft in communities where it has been properly implemented. The program is based on the premise that items that are difficult for a thief to sell are less likely to be stolen.
It is easy to join Operation I.D. and costs you nothing but a little time.
First: Borrow an engraving tool from the Police Deptartment and pick up an inventory form.
Second: List valuables on the form and engrave your drivers license number on all property.
Third: Display Operation I.D. stickers on your doors and windows to warn the potential thief that all items have been marked for ready identification by Law Enforcement Agencies. The stickers are given out upon return of the engraver.
All materials for this program can be obtained from the Lumberton Township Police Department Crime Prevention Unit.
Neighborhood Watch is a well-organized group of citizens that encourages residents to become more aware of their surroundings and to act as the ‘eyes and ears’ of the police department. There are several Watch groups already established in Lumberton. For information or assistance with starting a Neighborhood Watch in your neighborhood contact Corporal Joseph McHugh at (856)267-1111.
