The Police Department advises Conway residents to keep all vehicles kept outside over night locked in order to prevent thefts by people who may be outside after dark.
The Police Department requests that neighbors be aware of activity in and around any nearby homes that may be for sale or vacant / unoccupied. There have been significant numbers of thefts of the copper piping from these types of homes around Beaver County. Please report any suspicious activity immediately by calling 9-1-1.
When to Call the Police
Anything that seems even slightly "out of place" for the area or during the time of day in which it occurs could mean criminal activity.
- A stranger entering your neighbor's house when it's unoccupied may be a burglar
- A scream heard anywhere may mean a robbery or rape
- Offers of merchandise at ridiculously low prices could mean stolen property
- Anyone removing accessories, license plates or gasoline from a car should be reported
- Anyone peering into parked cars may be looking for valuables left in the car
- Persons entering or leaving a business after hours could be burglars
- The sound of breaking glass or other explosive noises could mean an accident, housebreaking, or vandalism
- Persons loitering around schools, parks, secluded areas, or in the neighborhood could be burglars
Most strangers who come into your neighborhood are not a criminal, but the following are examples of when behaviors that initially appear normal take on another character upon closer observation and become suspicious:
- Someone is going door-to-door in your neighborhood. Watch for a while. If, after a few houses are visited, one or more of the persons tries a door to see if it is locked or goes into a back or side yard, it could be a burglar. Such action is even more suspicious if one person remains in front when this occurs or if there is a car following a few houses away.
- Anyone forcing entrance to or tampering with a residence, business or vehicle is suspicious anytime, anywhere.
- A person running, especially if carrying something of value, could be leaving the scene of a crime.
- A person exhibiting unusual mental or physical symptoms may be injured, under the influence of drugs or otherwise needing medical or psychiatric assistance.
- Parked, occupied vehicles containing one or more persons are espcially significant if observed at an unusual hour. They could be possible lookouts for a burglary in progress.
- Apparent business transactions conducted from a vehicle, especially around schools or parks and if juveniles are involved, could mean possible drug sales.
- An abandoned vehicle parked on your block may be a stolen car.
CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY IF YOU OBSERVE POSSIBLE CRIMINAL ACTIVITY!!
While some, if not all, of the above suspicious situations described above could have innocent explanations, the Conway Police Department would rather investigate a situation that could be criminal activity than be called after it's too late. Your involvement could save a life, prevent an injury, or stop a crime. ________________________________________________________________Police Related Links
