On any given day the Hopkinsville Police Department receives multiple reports of home burglaries.
According to Hopkinsville Police Public Information Officer Paul Ray, a burglary can happen at anytime and in any neighborhood.
Officer Ray says despite that disturbing trend, local citizens can take simple measures to reduce their chances of having their home burglarized.
According to Officer Ray, keep all your doors and windows locked, keep a porch light on at night, be aware of what is going in your neighborhood and to alert police when you there is suspicious activity going on.
In addition, Officer Ray says burglars potentially look for unoccupied homes, homes that are being constructed or residences that don’t have a car parked out in front.
If you would like to report suspicious activity contact the police department at 270-890-0264.
