As a follow up to the last post:

Coucillor Toomey and the Cambridge Police Department are holding a community meeting this Tuesday August 16 at 6:00pm in the first floor community room of the Cambridge Police Station (125 Sixth St).

There will be an update on the recent uptick in housebreaks in the East Cambridge area as well as some tips to keeping your home safe.

ADVISORY: From the Cambridge Police Department

Housebreaks in East Cambridge
– The Cambridge Police Department has recently identified an uptick in residential burglaries in the East Cambridge neighborhood.

August 5, 2011 – The Cambridge Police Department has recently identified an uptick in residential burglaries in your neighborhood.
Housebreaks were one of the primary topics at the Cambridge Police Department BridgeStat meeting this week, and CPD will be deploying additional resources to help prevent this pattern.
Residents can find more detailed information in the next edition of BridgeStat, to be released later today at www.CambridgePolice.org/BridgeStat.
To help combat these crimes, and to avoid becoming a victim, please

 Try “casing” your own home, at night and during the day. Attempt to gain access to your home when the doors and windows are locked and “secure.” Make sure you have some identification on you in case your neighbors call the police. ALWAYS lock your doors and windows. Doors should be made from strong wood or metal and should be locked with a deadbolt. Install guards on windows that prevent them from being raised more than a few inches. Leave a light on (perhaps on a timer) when you go away, even for the evening. Leave a television or radio on as well. Install motion sensor lights outside your home and out of reach so burglars cannot unscrew the light. Also, buy variable light timers to activate lights in your home. NEVER prop open the door or let someone in behind you if you live in an apartment building. If the building has a main entryway, make sure that security is enforced at the main door. Report residents who do this to your landlord. Be vigilant. If you suspect suspicious activity around your home, your neighbors’ homes, or in your neighborhood, please report it to the police immediately by calling 617-349-3300. Document serial numbers of all electronics and take pictures of all valuables. Keep this in a safe place to provide to the police in the event you are burglarized.
