On June 1, 2021, University Park Police Department joined police departments from across the United States in a public safety campaign, originally launched by Pasco Sheriff’s Office. It is aimed at promoting resident vigilance to reduce and prevent thefts from vehicles and homes. The campaign known as the "9 P.M. Routine", is a crime prevention strategy that encourages residents to conduct security checks in their homes and vehicles each evening to ensure their property is safe and secure.
Participating in the 9 P.M. Routine
Set a reminder on your smartphone or laptop at 9 P.M. each evening, to ensure the following tasks have been completed:
- Vehicles, residences, garages, windows, gates sheds have been locked
- Exterior lights, security cameras, home and vehicle alarm systems have been activated
- Valuables from vehicles (including keys), yards, patios have been placed inside locked storage.
The University Park Police hopes you will join us to keep your property safe. Remember keep it safe, keep it with you!
