Be Careful With Your Discards

Due to recent crime problems in Richland Park/Oaks, the Richardson Police Department kindly asks us to pay close attention to what we throw away. Thieves are looking for items to steal, and one thing we don’t want to do is draw their attention. When you place empty boxes out for trash pickup (like the box your brand new big screen HDTV came in), this sends an invitation for crime to visit. You may also want to consider using a shredder for all sensitive bills and documentation. For more information about crime prevention, visit Richardson's tip website or call the Crime Prevention Unit at (972) 744-4955.
