How does it work?

Every night at 9PM The Platte County Sheriff's Office would like to encourage a new habit by:

(1) Removing valuables from your vehicle (purses, wallets, bags, garage door openers, etc...).

(2) Ensure your car doors are locked and the windows are rolled up.

(3) Check your mail. (don't leave mail in your mailbox overnight).

(4) Make sure your garage door, all exterior doors and windows are closed and locked.

(5) Turn on exterior lights. Thieves hate lights!

The Platte County Sheriff's Office is encouraging you to follow this routine to make you more aware of your home security and will help protect your personal belongings.
