Burlington Police Release Tips for Upcoming Spring Season

By: Robert Parris

Snow may still be sitting in people’s backyards, but spring is just around the corner.

As temperatures increase over the next several weeks, the Burlington Police Department has released some precautionary tips for residents who are getting ready to enjoy the upcoming spring season.

-Always keep your home doors and windows locked when you go to bed or leave your house, even if you are leaving for a short period of time.

-Secure all lawn and gardening equipment in your garage or a storage shed, and keep your garage doors closed at all times (even when you're doing work around the house).

-Put all ladders and other tools back into a secure storage area after you use them.

-Be aware of home improvements scams. If you did not solicit the contractor or salesman who shows up at your door unannounced, do not do business with that person.

If any door-to-door salesperson does not appear to be registered with the Burlington Police Department please call 781-272-1212.

-Always remember to close your car windows, take any valuables out of your car, and lock your doors every time you exit your vehicle, even if your vehicle is parked in your driveway.

-Let a trusted neighbor know if you are planning to travel this spring. Neighbors who know each other look out for each other.


Finally residents should always be aware of their surroundings and if you see something, say something.
