When Neighbors Lock it,
Light it & Trim it, Crime Goes Down!

of 69 from 2015, and the lowest since 1959.
Shaker Residents Draw the Line on Crime
We all know that Shaker unites behind a worthy cause. What better cause than
the security of our community? Statistics prove that when Shaker residents
engage, they are effective force multipliers and the work of the police department
becomes the work of the community.
Don’t second guess yourself. Call the Police.
• If you see something that seems out of the ordinary in your
neighborhood or on your street.
• If you notice unfamiliar footprints in your yard that were not there
the night before.
• If you detect an unusual pattern of activity in or around a vacant
house on your street.
• If the car zooming down your street every day is endangering
• If someone rings your bell claiming to sell something or provide a
service that seems suspicious.
• If something makes you stop and notice because it feels unusual
or out of the ordinary.
SHPD would always rather check it out now than find out about it after a crime has
been committed. Be smart. Be safe. Be happy.
