Crime Prevention Tips – February 2010

February 5th, 2010

BICYCLE REGISTRATION – Due to the increased thefts of bicycles, the Tilden Township Police suggest registering your bicycle with the Police Dept. Registration is free. Please call 610-562-9001 to make an appointment to have your bicycle registered.

LOCK YOUR VEHICLE – Due to thefts from vehicles, you are reminded to ALWAYS lock your vehicle no matter where it is parked, even in your own driveway. Also do not leave money or other valuables visible inside the vehicle.

PHONE AND INTERNET SCAMS – Be aware of suspicious phone calls or email notices that you have won some sort of cash prize or other large award. DO NOT give your personal information or banking or credit card information to anyone over the phone, internet or email unless you positively know they are legitimate. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Please report any suspicious phone calls or emails to the Tilden Township Police Department at 610-562-9001.
