Tracy police provide residential crime prevention tips

Tracy police provide residential crime prevention tips

TRACY - The Tracy Police Department wants to make sure residents have security tips for landscaping and lighting around your home, to help keep you and your family safe, and prevent crime.

Residential Landscaping 
Plant materials should be trimmed so they are not any higher than the sill of the window or they have no branches below 3-feet, to create a clearance space to allow you to have a clear line of sight. If you have any overgrown bushes or shrubs, they should be trimmed and removed. At a minimum, overgrown bushes should be trimmed 1-foot from any building structure wall and should be trimmed to a height of 3-feet. If trimming a bush to that height is not possible or would potentially kill the plant, it should be trimmed up 1-foot from the ground. 

Outdoor Lighting 
It is a well known fact that lighting is an instrumental part to reducing crime.
