Tips from the CPD:
1- If you see suspicious activity or persons in your neighborhood, call the police or use TIP411.
2- Reminder- DO NOT engage physically or in conversation with a suspect in any crime, call the Clearwater Police from a safe location and inform CPD of the suspect(s) illegal activity, clothing, race and gender, height, weight, vehicle, and direction of travel.
3- With the beautiful weather, many residents are out enjoying the neighborhood. Being outside alone can be dangerous, especially when it is dark. Predators lay in wait for people to pass and catch them by surprise.
4- It’s safer to exercise with a partner- most criminals will avoid groups of two or more. When you are out, always be on alert. Pay careful attention to your surroundings and avoid areas that are not well lit.
5- If you listen to music while you exercise, keep the volume low enough that you can hear what's happening around you. A predator may sneak up from behind if they know you have neither seen nor heard them.
