WHO: This event is sponsored by ECCO, CARAG, Lowry Hill East/Wedge, East Isles, and the presenter will be from Fifth Precinct MPD crime prevention. The main door/windows information presented will be useful for anyone, whether you rent or own, live in a house or condos or apartment.

WHY: In 2015, 82% of reported Part One crimes in Fifth Precinct were JUST burglary and theft/larceny. These are often crimes of opportunity, which means there are some simple and often cheap (or even free) steps you can take to decrease the vulnerabilities in your home.

We hope to see you -- we will be there RAIN OR SHINE! Refreshments will be available.
