  WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU'RE A CRIME VICTIM

 

 911 SYSTEM

 

The 911 telephone system is standard nationwide to enable  callers

to reach emergency services by phone with a minimum of difficulty.

If you have an emergency involving the safety of life or property,

you are encouraged to make use of the system. In most areas, you

may dial 911 from a pay phone without the need for coins.

 

If your area has enhanced 911 with automatic number identification

and automatic location identification, your name, address and

telephone number will be displayed on a screen at the 911

operator's position when the connection is made. Help can be

dispatched to your location even if you don't get a chance to say

a word!

 

 

BURGLARY

 

If you arrive at your home or business and feel that it has been

burglarized, DO NOT ENTER, but go to another location and call the

police. Let the police search the property to make sure that no

suspect is still present. Upon entering your home or business, do

not touch things unnecessarily as you may disturb or destroy

fingerprint and other evidence. Inform the police of anything

that has been moved from its original position so that it can be

checked for prints. Notify the police if you find anything that

is not yours that may have been left behind by the burglar such as

tools, clothing, etc. (Driver's licenses and other identification

have been left behind by burglars before!)

 

Be prepared to provide the police with serial numbers and a

complete description of all missing property. Tell the police if

you have engraved any of the items with your driver's license or

other personalized number.

 

 

ROBBERY

 

You've heard it before and now here it is again: Never resist if

you are the victim of a robbery. Do exactly as you are told to do

in order to minimize your chances of being injured and to speed

the departure of your assailant before he gets other ideas. The

assailant, in most cases, doesn't want to hang around much longer

than you want him to.

 

Your money and other valuables can hopefully be replaced. If they

can't be replaced don't let that thought cause you to hesitate.

You certainly cannot be replaced. Try to obtain a good

description of the suspect(s) and the direction and mode (on foot,

vehicle) of escape.

 

It's always a good idea to have a second billfold with a few

dollars and a few important looking cards in it to give to an

attacker should the need arise. Keep your real cash and cards in

an interior pocket not easily accessible by the robber. Do not

resist any attempt the attacker may make to search your pockets,

however.

 

 

CON GAMES

 

The object of any con game is to cause you to part with your money

or other thing of value. Most con games are initiated by people

who approach you on the street or call on you at your home. Be

suspicious of ANY plan, idea, scheme, business deal or whatever

that requires you to part with your money on short notice.

 

If you feel you have been the victim of a con game or an illegal

business practice, notify the police. Do not be embarrassed or

hesitant to tell the authorities for fear of ridicule. The sooner

you notify the police the greater your chances of recovering your

property. You may not be the only victim of whatever group is

operating, and your statements and those of other victims may help

in apprehending the suspects.

 

 

HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT

 

If you are involved in a traffic accident and the other driver

leaves the scene, immediately try to see and remember or record

the license plate number and description of the vehicle and the

driver. You may only have a few seconds to do this. Also try to

notice where the damage is located on his vehicle. If you can

SAFELY do so, and your vehicle is not disabled, and no one can do

it for you, follow the suspect for a short distance to get the

license plate number if you were not able to get it at the scene.

The suspect will probably be exceeding the speed limit so do not

get involved in anything resembling a pursuit. Don't compound the

problem by committing traffic violations and causing another

accident for which you may be held responsible. If you cannot get

the information in a short distance, return to the scene and

notify the police. If other motorists are nearby, try to find a

volunteer to follow the suspect to get the license number.

 

Ask witnesses to remain or at least to leave their name and

address and a written description of the suspect vehicle and

driver.

 

Be suspicious of drivers who do stop following the accident but

ask you or offer you money not to call the police. This should

alert you to immediately start recording license plate and other

information. These drivers may decide to leave quickly.

 

Contact a crime prevention specialist at your local law

enforcement agency. They will provide you with the latest

information on crime prevention. Ask about an on-site crime

prevention survey of your home or business. Also ask if your

agency has a program to loan out engraving tools. If so, borrow

one and mark your valuables with your driver's license number or

whatever number your agency recommends.
