Home Security Tips

Tempe PD and the National Crime Prevention Council provide the following safety tips for residents:

  • Call Police immediately if you feel threatened. 9-1-1 in emergency. Program the Tempe PD non-emergency line into your phone: 480-350-8311

  • Do not answer the door if you do not know the person, but do not ignore the knock.

  • Safety overrides politeness. Just because someone wants access does not mean they get it.

  • Look out a window if you can do so unobserved. Turn on music or make noise so that potential suspects know there is someone inside.

  • Don’t allow strangers into your home, even if they are hurt or say they need help - keep the door locked and call the police to assist them.

  • Delivery people should have identification; you can call the company to assure the delivery is legitimate.

  • Teach kids age-appropriate assertiveness “and how and when to say NO”

  • All entryways should have sturdy deadbolt locks installed into the door frame.

  • Install an overhead garage door lock. Don’t rely solely on an automatic opener.

  • A dowel or a pin to secure a glass door should be installed to prevent the door from being shoved aside or lifted off the tracks.

  • Every window in a home should be equipped with a working lock or securely pinned.

  • Valuable items, such as television, stereos and computers should be inscribed with an identifying number.

  • Keep doors, windows and gates secure.

  • All doors should be locked when at home, and every time you leave the house.

Recycling Improvements for Tempe

The city of Tempe recently has added new items to its recycling list. New additions include beer and soda carriers, foil food containers and boxes for bar soap, detergent and cereal.  Tempe is working on programs to recycle plastic grocery bags which currently cannot be placed in the recycling bins. A program to recycle rigid plastics such as toys and storage bins is also in the works. For more information on these programs and a complete list of acceptable items to place in the blue bins, visit http://www.tempe.gov/recycling.
